That's a really nice composition David. It makes you want to be out and about in this lovely countryside only a stone's throw away from Wigan.
We Wiganers have a lot to be proud of haven't we?!

England's green & pleasant land indeed, long may it remain so. A very peaceful English scene. I have a photo of myself aged about 10 with my sister & Dad 'on Winter Hill' Never knew where it was till now.

I know you are in Adelaide Lizzie, but Adelaide isn,t 13,000 miles away it,s only 10,000.Gisborne is the first city in the world to see the sunrise and that,s only 12,400 miles from Standish,lol.

Thanks, Dave. I thought it was just too green to be a Spring pic.-even though your Spring is really accelerated, to an ex-pat. in still- snowy Ontario! You're right, it was a real "shot in the arm" to see "England's green and pleasant land" in it's Summer glory!
