Sunrise on Millgate
Yes - it really was that colour!
Photo: Dave (Oy) (Fuji X100)
Amazing colours! I love how the sidewalk...oops, pavement looks pink!
Interesting photo,not much about for 8.00am Wed, half closing day for some.
Looks like something is on fire.
Millgate has certainly changed since I was last there, forty five years ago, I don't recognize it at all.
Looks like a scene from the film; The Day the Earth Caught Fire.
Clever effect, but... I don't like it. Too false.
Lovely Dave.....a good day to take a photo, my hubby's 64th birthday......another amazing pic for my album....Thankyou :)
Thanks for telling us the time and date when taken, Dave. The colour of the sky does look unnatural.
All the tall buildings make Wigan look like New York!!
On Wed.16th Jan.`13, where I live in Shevington, there was a thick frost on roof and garden, but road, pavement and my drive were frost free. The frost remained all day.
It stopped me from going to play golf!
That's a brilliant picture!
Nice shot well done mate.
Horrible photo. The sky is too contrived. Keep it natural,Dave.
It only lasted for 5 or 10 minutes but this is how it looked. If you don't like it - blame Mother Nature LOL!
Fabulous colours it's surprising how many folk think the sky can't be pink or purple. Shame they don't look up now and then.
Nicely done, love the tone mapped sky.
Saw exactly the same colours in Aspull Dave, right place right time.
You've over-exposed the sky, Dave compared to the rest of the picture. Spoils a good shot.
'All the tall buildings make Wigan look like New York!!'
Erm, Think it is time you booked an eye test, or at least Googled 'New York'.
That view (and street) is set to change more so in the coming years, there is a new 6 storey hotel going on the site formally designated for the 'Tower Grand' building, and a cinema in the pipeline for the Civic centre site.
Ferg1985, are you in America? My American relatives call me Ern.
Where do you get your info re hotel and cinema?
Perfect exposure great shot, I love the sky
Great photo, Dave. The sky was indeed just like that last Wednesday. I remember commenting to my husband as I was going to work at 8am that it would make a fab photo.
Ernest, believe me, as a regular visitor to New York, Wigan is NOTHING like it.
That is fantastic Dave
Dave we get similar skies here in the morning.....same colours....most times this happens we get rain.... The colour is made by the sun reflecting off water crystals in the air.....very pretty, and yes they only last a short while.....cheers!!!!
Yes it was this colour, pretty amazing, I got a picture too of this sky in Hindley.
I'm glad other people saw it too!
It was stunning - but brief!
Linda I agree.....Wigan is Wigan.....New York is New York......simple.....cheers!!!
Lousy picture. I'm convinced its been 'touched'up' If not...time to change the camera!
