Across the Douglas Valley
 Across the Douglas Valley   by Rev David Long  (Sony SLT-A65V)
As the crow flies, itís ten miles from my house in Standish to Christ Church Aughton, which stands on the ridge south of Ormskirk. Itís between 11 and 12 miles by road.

The sky at night
What a lovely sight
Waiting still for the dawn light


Comment by Beryl on 4th March 2016 at 20:14
Wow


Comment by Vb on 4th March 2016 at 21:00
Had I the Heavens'embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,I would spread the cloths under your feet;
But I being poor,have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
W.B.Yeats

Excellent, Rev...

Well done, you...


Comment by irene roberts on 4th March 2016 at 22:40
Vb, I only know that poem from the tv series, "Sex, Chips and Rock'n'Roll", which sounds an unlikely source if ever there was one, but that is where I know it from, nevertheless, and I find it beautiful.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 4th March 2016 at 22:40
Nice sunset. I reckon you coudl lose the bottom 3rd of the pic though.


Comment by Vb on 4th March 2016 at 23:48
I thought that Dave from an amateur artist point of view. Working to the rule of thirds .Glad you like the poem Irene its one of my favourites...I love skies!


Comment by Dave K on 5th March 2016 at 03:30
WOW indeed Beryl. Still awaiting a response about email addresses.


Comment by Alan on 5th March 2016 at 05:34
I reckon you could loose it all.
Its not a contest Dave Oy.


Comment by Vb on 5th March 2016 at 08:55
Title of poem Irene-
"He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven"


Comment by Rev David Long on 5th March 2016 at 09:37
Thanks, Dave - but if I'd done that you wouldn't be able to see (dimly) the lamp posts on the M6 slip roads....;-)
