Lovely photo Harry, I have walked that canal bank many times with my Bro-in-law Jimmy.


Comment by John Morris on 19th July 2014 at 00:16
A cracking shot Harry. Beautiful composition.


Comment by dw on 19th July 2014 at 00:20
good one.


Comment by Harry C. on 19th July 2014 at 07:34
That should have read taken Thursday 10th July.


Comment by Mick on 19th July 2014 at 07:51
Im always careful when Im riding my bike around this canal bend because the tow path is so high up from the water level you wouldnt be able to drag yourself out and could easily drown.

I one asked the Priestess in St James Church, could I climb up the church tower and she said yes, she even let me leave my bike inside to church so it wouldnt get pinched


Comment by Harry C. on 19th July 2014 at 08:14
Mick I was on my bike riding back from Bryn and had the same thought, but unlike Aspull the towpath from Platt Bridge is paved and easier to ride on.

Beautiful photograph :)


Comment by kath on 19th July 2014 at 08:53
That's a beautiful photo!


Comment by Ron D on 19th July 2014 at 08:54
Nice one Harry.


Comment by Fred Mason on 19th July 2014 at 09:36
Very nice, Harry.

Great composition even though photography rules say that you should not put a tall object in the centre of the frame, this one breaks the rules and works.
Lovely shot. Well done.

So much for rules, eh?


Comment by Gareth on 19th July 2014 at 09:51
Nice one .


Comment by irene roberts on 19th July 2014 at 10:06
A beautiful composition. I love jigsaws and this would make a lovely one!


Comment by Maureen on 19th July 2014 at 11:15
That's a beautiful shot Harry..it reminds me of a Constable painting.


Comment by Mick on 19th July 2014 at 12:51
Maureen why would a constable be painting in Poolstock.


Comment by M.O.T. on 19th July 2014 at 14:04
A fantastic shot Harry. Brings back wonderful memories of my childhood, spent in Poolstock. I lived just behind St. James's Church and attended there regularly until I moved away, but Poolstock will always hold a special place in my heart. Thanks for this lovely photo.


Comment by Fred C on 19th July 2014 at 14:31
Excellent!


Comment by Roy on 19th July 2014 at 14:42

Comment by Polly on 19th July 2014 at 16:05

Comment by Alan on 19th July 2014 at 20:12
Maureen and Mick should get married! Nice one Harry.


Comment by Harry C. on 20th July 2014 at 06:43
Thanks all for your comments.


Comment by Maureen on 20th July 2014 at 23:08

chair.
