Photo-a-Day (Friday, 6th April, 2012)
Sorry mick that's a poor pic.
Its looking towards Elnup Wood from near the old pig farm between Standish and Shevington if anyones interested.
what nice greenery,where is this mick? nice clean air.
Anna its taken from where the old Hermitage use to be.
Its not a photo contest Mark and your wrong in saying its taken from near the old pig farm because its taken from the Hermitage.
A silly comment Mick, I would have thought to keep bikers out. Farms and Horses do mix.
Not silly at all Garry the main path is for horses and the gated part is not.
Reason being is horses and there riders go out in all weathers when the ground is very wet and make great big horse footprints in the soft ground.
And when it dries up you left with a track that no one can use properly
Lovely photo Mick. Thanks for posting.
What about bike wheel tracks in the ground, that's the real problem.
Well said Mick, your photo hasn't been seen before, and you seem to know where you are, by the way is that your bike?
Firstly, I am real, so there.
Secondly, Nice pic, Mick. Highly Evocative.
Great photo Mick, don't even give these complaining morons your time and energy, just keep sending in more great Wigan photo's,
Thanks for the posting!
Your never going to please everybody with every photo.
Perhaps these who criticise the most should take their cameras out and take some photo's of their own.
Not everybody likes birds (not everybody like Picasso) - I'm not a big fan, but other people love them, others like steam trains, and yet others like buildings.
Before making judgement on how good or poor a photo is, take the time to take your own photo and get it put on here.
Personally I think all the photo's on here must deserve some merit - after all, they have been chosen to appear on Wigan's Premiere website!
I think it might have 'worked' better if you had cropped the foreground to the bottom of the gates - just a suggestion.
am I right is the hermitage lodge on the left or has it been filled in ?not been down there since 1966.
I like the photo Mick but like you say it is not a competition anyway. If you had taken a pair of step ladders and had a higher viewpoint so you were "looking over" the gate, a bit more, it might have improved it, but not many people take step ladders when they are out enjoying themselves....I certainly don't!!!!
Your right Alan the Hermitage lodge on the left and people still fish in it.
What`s new Lee Leyland? You mustn`t have read the comments over recent days. When was a photo of yours shown on Photo-a-Day?
Spot on John Morris, but Mick could have used the fence as ladders. good photo though.
I thought of using the fence as a ladder Colin, but I feel that the fence and gate within the picture gives it depth.
Have had three or four on here over the last 12 months Mr. Pyke.

My sons had a few on as well.
proberbly do the same as in dean wood and put a chain saw through it all so as to en able the local cant do no wrong horsey horsey we have a right to go anywhere and are beyond the law brigade
Lee Leyland: your photo of the moon on Feb.2011 is excellent, but as no doubt you are aware, I`m not a lover of `wildlife` photo`s on Photo-a-Day, which your photo of a muscovy duck on 23rd Feb.2011 is. People at the next farm to my Uncle`s in Somerset, many years ago, kept muscovy ducks--I always thought they were from Russia, but not so apparently.
Ernest - not a big fan of bird shots myself - but some people are, I don't suppose they like some of the things I do (in fact I'm sure of it!).
Still there's enough room on here for us all :-)
