Pennington Flash
 Pennington Flash   by Janice Freeman  (Nikon D3100 f11 1/30sec)
Pennington Flash taken from the Sailing Club side. Hard to believe that this lovely Nature reserve has been created from mining subsidence.

Comment by Ken R on 9th November 2012 at 00:06
Lovely photo. Wish I was there. Not too hard to believe Janice, when you have worked underground you see all the subsidence from a different perspective.

Could some one tell me what the minimum wage is in the UK (WIGAN)


Comment by Lizzie down under on 9th November 2012 at 02:10
What a lovely picture, so green, hard to believe that it is created by mining subsidence!!!! Lovely Janice, cheers!!


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 9th November 2012 at 06:17
A very peaceful scene, Janice. Photo can`t be recent, as no autumn tints? At first glance, the water in the gap between the trees, looks like a waterfall!
For Ken (comment yesterday at 15:30), this is in Leigh. For info on Pennington Flash see my comment on P-a-D 30th Sept.`12.

This photo is short of a duck,swan, man in a boat.


Comment by Janice on 9th November 2012 at 08:55
Taken around mid September Ernest. Can see what you mean about the waterfall! Mick,don't wish to be rude but your constant negativity (attempts at sarcasm?)are becoming boring I am afraid.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 9th November 2012 at 10:23
Thanks Janice, if you look from a short distance away, the `waterfall`is more prominent.


Comment by Gareth on 9th November 2012 at 10:28
I go around that part often in the Summer and the trees in the distance are on what was a landfill ( or tip ) and shows what you can achieve if you try !


Comment by Dave b on 9th November 2012 at 10:48
Very nice Janice,you wouldn't think when you walk round Pennington flash you were only a short distance from Leigh town centre.


Comment by piccyme123 on 9th November 2012 at 11:10
Lovely shot, and just shows Beauty can come from the Beast. keep up the great piccys

Michael Davies AUS the minimum rates of pay as of oct 1st 2012 are , 21 and over £6-19 , 18 to. 20 £4-98 under 18 £3-68. Apprentices. £2-65 under 19 or in their first year ,then above rates apply , these are obviously hourly rates


Comment by Margaret Wall on 9th November 2012 at 12:05
I can definately see what you mean Ernest. Even if you look directly at the water between the trees, it looks like a wide waterfall. It's a strange optical illusion.
Nice photo Janice!


Comment by Mick on 9th November 2012 at 14:37
Ernest your right the water in the middle of the photo looks lower well spotted I wonder whats making it look like that.


Comment by jeff haydock on 9th November 2012 at 17:33
Nice shot, like the hdr processing.


Comment by Mick on 9th November 2012 at 18:06
HDR processing Jeff whats that when its at home.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 9th November 2012 at 20:21
Mick, I`ve never heard of HDR but all I did was go on Google and Wikipedia gives the info on ;-

Comment by Mick on 9th November 2012 at 22:49
Just had a look Ernest maybe thats why the waters looking bent.


Comment by Art on 10th November 2012 at 01:07
Never ever seen a "waterfall" on a still water flash.
Mind you some would have us paddlin' uphill on't village pond next..;o)


Comment by michael davies australia on 10th November 2012 at 06:06
thanks for the wage rates Bill,guess once ones payed the rent and the food bill theres not much left,guess its just enough to survive.I believe rents around Wigan start at around a hundred pounds a week..Thanks again Bill


Comment by michael davies australia on 10th November 2012 at 06:14
