White Out
 White Out   by David Barker  (Nikon D3000 18-55mm VR lens)
Taken just after midnight on the 26th looking up Haigh Road, Aspull towards Radcliffe Road.

Comment by Ken R on 28th January 2013 at 00:10
I can't remember seeing Haigh Rd, like this before, on friday we had a seventy car pile up in a white out on one of our major highways.

Great shot David
To the right of the pic would be the former Aspull County Secondary School....right?


Comment by Lizzie down under on 28th January 2013 at 00:25
Glorious colour David.....another for my album,Thankyou.....cheers!!!


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 28th January 2013 at 04:01
Was taken 24 hours after most of the snow had fallen, David. Some of the snow had melted on the 26th.
This photo, on my laptop, has a brownish tinge all over and the snow isn`t white! The light shining on the trees is a good contrast with the darkness below them and I also like the perspective.

Ernest I think I was living overseas when the bus crashed into it.


Comment by Mick on 28th January 2013 at 09:42
Here in the centre of Shevy we have fancy new street lights that give off a pure white light.

Other comments to Ernest should have been on yesterdays photo.


Comment by piccyme on 28th January 2013 at 10:02
what a great shot, but, i am so happy its all gone now


Comment by Janice on 28th January 2013 at 10:29
Lovely shot David. It does have an orangey cast Ernest - due to the street lighting. If David adjusts the white balance either in camera or using software then a truer colour could be obtained. Must say I like this though.


Comment by Al.C. on 28th January 2013 at 11:36
I Like the spooky effect of the yellow light.


Comment by David Barker on 28th January 2013 at 19:19
Thanks for your comments,correct Brian the schools long gone houses built now,thanks Janice more photos on communicate/general/snow pics/ you can tell the difference in the yellow and the LED street lights thought I'd leave the balance to compare them.

belter


Comment by Janice on 28th January 2013 at 19:56
Good idea to compare David. I do that with a lot of my photos just to see what they look like with a different hue.


Comment by Janice on 28th January 2013 at 20:01
Meant to say that I did look at your other images David and they are really good. I love the Nikon cameras as well - within the last few days I have upgraded to the D7000 Finding it a challenge!!!


Comment by Brian from Masachsuetts on 28th January 2013 at 21:35
Thanks David - are you from Aspull? I grew up on St David's Cresent - left for the US in 1984 but come home to visit my Dad and brother every year


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 28th January 2013 at 22:03
Another WOW picture.Well done David.
Why do we always get these "negative" comments on all (or most of the photo`s.)
Pardon the pun by the way !


Comment by David Barker on 28th January 2013 at 22:15
Yes always lived in Aspull Brian cheers.


Comment by Mick on 28th January 2013 at 22:48
Jean I cant see any negative comments can you point out the ones that your on about.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 29th January 2013 at 21:44
Sorry Mick but there are a lot of poor,comments on good photo`s not one in particular but many.The pictures sent in are as the photographer sees them and sent in for us to enjoy.


Comment by Mick on 29th January 2013 at 22:17
Jean sometimes a photo might spark a bit of interest to some in a different way to others folk, and I still cant see anything said that is negative except for your comments.
