Homeward Bound

Homeward Bound
LL Canal in Ince near Rabbit rocks.

I underexposed this shot by 2/3rds, to give rich & well saturated colour, [a similar affect to using a Polarizing filter].

Fred ,
The rabbit rocks run parallel to and north of the Whelley loop line between Belle Green Lane and the canal!
I think it may be the residue from the furnaces,but you get a great view of Wigan from the summit.
