tranquil!

What a change from yesterday`s photo, Andrew! Was it taken before the snow came?
For lot`s of snow and ice on L and L canal at Haigh see Mick`s video `Icy Canal` posted today on Forum, General.


Comment by Mick on 23rd January 2013 at 08:47
Lizzie down under if your heart is skipping beats by looking at this run of the mill canal photo youd best not look at the video of the Icy Canal on the forum section.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 23rd January 2013 at 09:13
Mick may I start by saying Thankyou for taking me around Shevington in the snow and a lovely vision of kids enjoying themselves on Parbold Hill in the snow.....heart skipping stuff also mick....now I will go and look at the Icy Canal....cheers to you all!!!!!


Comment by Gary on 23rd January 2013 at 09:21
What may seem 'run of the mill' to you, Mick, is pure gold to many. The Leeds/Liverpool Canal took years of back-breaking work and could (almost) be listed as a 'Wonder of the World' It is one of the things that made Britain great and changed the world via the indusrtial revolution. Hardly-run of the mill...


Comment by Lizzie down under on 23rd January 2013 at 09:37
Not run of the mill mick.....a great canal with a nice little long boat or is it a barge???
Loved the icy canal with the geese skidding over the ice......wonder what happened to split beak and how it happened???
Thanks Mick I loved it......cheers!!

Photo a Day is usually the first thing I look at in the morning,Lizzie,and they get better all the time


Comment by david on 23rd January 2013 at 09:59
Great photograph - full frame at its best!


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 23rd January 2013 at 10:31
Lizzie, it`s a NARROWBOAT. Rev David has mentioned many times on P-a- the types of boats on L and L canal.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 23rd January 2013 at 10:59
Dave Marsh when it is 10.30 in the morning here it is midnight in the Uk so around that time I have a look to see what surprise I am going to get for the day....
My sister Jo always looks to see what I have posted on pic-a-day when she gets to work....cheers!!!!

When we moored here - some years ago in our shared narrow boat - we were advised not to spend the night in the area as it was quite dangerous. This did upset me a lot. Anyway, we went on towards the Liverpool end and moored in the countryside. The few trips we did along the canal were some of the best, especially the Wigan flight on a summer Sunday afternoon.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder Mick - and what I behold is yet another beautiful picture from a guy who knows what he is doing! Great shot Andrew - cheap shot advert for your video Mick ;)

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder Janice....
I know what I see and how it affects me....
Re: the first post here.....cheers!!!


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 23rd January 2013 at 20:42
Beautiful picture Andrew...


Comment by peterp on 23rd January 2013 at 21:38
lizzie look on forum under photos of Wigan, Wigan pier quarter photos.Look at photo no2which is a shot looking towards the pier. Then imagine turning 180 degrees trencherfield mill would be on your left with a lock infront of you.Walk past the lock and the shot in above photo was took from approx there,all new appartments on both sides of canal.


Comment by Mick on 23rd January 2013 at 21:39
I didnt think it was a cheap shot Janice I thought it was very cleverly done.


Comment by Linda on 23rd January 2013 at 21:45
Another fab photo, Andrew. I used to work in the Investment Centre offices to the right until they moved us out. We had an office on the canal side and what a lovely view it was, especially when the canal was frozen and the ducks landed on it skidding as they did.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 23rd January 2013 at 23:50
Peterp went there on google maps.....very nice location....saw the lock and the new apartments...be nice to live there...cheers!!!


Comment by Art on 24th January 2013 at 00:53
A narrowboat is keel-less, & so qualifies as a barge, which can also be known as a broad beamed boat;o)


Comment by Lizzie down under on 25th January 2013 at 01:30
Thanks Art......so I am a little bit right..cheers!!


Comment by Art on 26th January 2013 at 01:41
Lizzie. Looking at the colour & build of that boat, it seems that it is a Waterways Work Barge..;o)
