Heck of a shot, Mick.
Quite a view. Love the misty, moodiness.Good 'un.
This is a very interesting and unusual view of Wigan, well done Mick!
A lovely, Autumnal scene.
What a fantastic photo Mick....thankyou.
Love it! An interesting viewpoint,the mistiness doesn't detract.
Mick I live near there but I have never seen a view as good as this. Great.
That's a funny word irene Autumnal!
ann21 have you tried looking over the little lane railway bridge, because that all I did.
Why, Garry? Autumnal is a perfectly ordinary word.
Garry,look it up in the dictionary..if you have one.
Why not just put Autumn, it's used much more than Autumnal. By the way, its not Autumn yet!
Garry, according to the Canadian Calendar, Fall (Autumn on your side of the Atlantic) begins on September 21st
Correct Ellen September 21st. Season of mists and mellow fruifulness.
September, October and November are Autumn; December, January and February are Winter; March, April and May are Spring; June, July and August are Summer. "Autumnal" is a verb that describes the Autumn days, that is all, and it IS Autumn as we speak. I could understand it if I was trying to be posh, but Autumnal is an ordinary, everyday word.
Autumnal is an adjective, as is Wintery or Summery...
but Springy - is an entirely different meaning!
I meant an adjective, Kenee, not a verb. I was so incensed at the criticism of a perfectly ordinary and acceptable word that I wasn't thinking straight. Thanks.
Kenee, the adjective that refers to things in Spring is Vernal eg, Vernal equinox, the day that day and night are the same length.
autumnal is widely used adjective. Don't let others' ignorance throw you Irene.
Thank you Alan for adding to that.
In North America the Autumnal equinox is known as the Fall equinox. The 'Spring equinox' is just that. We don't say Wintery solstice though.
I told you Mick you'll get loads of comments.lol. irene your spot on love.
