Good but creepy photo. Looks like someone bending over backwards with one leg in the air.

It was a cold day but pleasant to be out in it. The lighting was just perfect so it was just a case of pointing and shooting. Wedont get many days like those.

I find woodlands difficult to photograph.One tree is not so bad. This is good' with the atmosphere about right.A cracker.

I always thought of Rivi to be Wigan,Though it is really Boltonish. Great place in any season!
