Duckies
 Duckies   by Dave (Oy)  (Nikon D700 with Nikon 24-70mm F2.8)
"Old Georges" pond - Wotton drive Ashton. It were all fields when I was a lad!

Thankyou for this lovely pic, it probably was a field when I was a girl!!! :-) cheers.

rumours around that this pond is to be filled in

Lovely photo Dave, the ducks sence you have food for them!


Comment by Janice on 14th November 2012 at 10:33
Beautiful photo Dave. Love the colouring and the pov. I hope it is not going to be filled in peterp - I hate to see anything like this destroyed.

a lovely piccy, well done


Comment by Al on 14th November 2012 at 11:56
I really hope it doesn't get filled in, no doubt it'll be used to build more houses on it, which we don't really need and I can't see it being turned into a field for kids to play in. Ashton was once full of areas like this, the building of the motorway through half of Skitters Wood ruined a lovely area of land and the same with Woodedge which you'd have to be a millionaire just to afford the houses around there. People think this is progress.

It was all fields when I was a girl...All the Independant Churches and Chapels after the Annual Ashton Walking Day would congregate on those fields at the back of the Caledonion for Prayer, food, fun and games.......

Nice one Dave. I always ride past it on the bike but this has reminded me to have a closer look next time.


Comment by mw on 14th November 2012 at 16:30
lovely photo Dave, i think the duckies think there is food the way they are all coming toward the camera


Comment by Thomas(Tom)Walsh . on 14th November 2012 at 19:57
A realy nice photograph Dave. I know this area very well indeed ,I was amazed how many houses they got on this peice of land,and always thought what a nice touch it was to develop the duck pound , I hope it's left to prosper .
