Straw sunset - 22nd Jan 2013
Photo: Dave (Oy) (Fuji X100)
Magic Dave......beautiful sunset.....nearly as good as an Aussie one..... :) cheers!!!
Hay Dave, what a nice shot. Make hay while the snow falls! What a lovely scene and a nice sunset.
Not my "baleywick" but you can't please everyone. It is a good picture though.
I wonder why the bale wasnt shrink wrapped.
Theres a video here of Wigan bales being shrink wrapped.
It's going to be a soggy bale, I like it but where's Billing Hill?
It's on the horizon, mid way between the bale and the right edge of the picture.
I'm new to wigan world ,Lizzie are you from Shevington did you go to St Marie's School?
I think you will find that it is hay that is shrink wrapped if it is to be for cattle silage, winter feed. These big round bales of straw are used for all sorts of purposes where I live, entrance barriers, cattle enclosures even bio fuel & you see it carted to places in the UK that don't have land flat enough to grow arable crops, so don't have straw for cattle....Wales for instance. Here you still see oblong bales of straw stacked into tall towers all round the fields...there you are, I expect you all wanted to know that !
Good photo Dave.
Harry Billinge Hill is the one off to the right with the towers on it.....TV antennas I think....cheers!!!
Nippy but nice
Been some amazing colours in the sunsets this winter ,nice one Dave.
What a fab photo. Love it!
I think that thee is a Billing Hill but it is in West Yorkshire maybe a spelling error and it maybe it should read - Billinge Hill !
Thanks folks :)
I echo Lizzie, absolute magic! Superb focus Dave; it makes all the difference. Having the eye for making these lovely pictures certainly helps!
Ann o I am originally from Pepper Lane Standish but now live in Adelaide South Australia....moved here in 64.
Yes I went to St Marie's then I went to St Peter's at Orrell Post.....cheers!!!
Great shot, that is!
Mick, re your latest video - I go to Bolton on the express train which takes 13 mins!
I did that once Ernest but we buy plenty of foreign veg, herbs and fish with there heads on so its easier for us to go by car, and the car parking is only £1 and hour.
