You can feel the serenity and almost "hear" the silence. A perfect, peaceful moment on Remembrance Day.

Lovely. As Maureen would say, it just needs a frame round it.

Comment by: Mick on 9th November 2014 at 12:05

What spoils it for me is the direction finger post.
That could have easily have been hidden behind the tree if the cameraman took a few steps to the left

Comment by: dirty harry on 9th November 2014 at 12:21

it's ok i suppose but i detect a lot of lens flare which is hurtful to my cornia's hence this is making me squint and ive just stubbed mi little toe on the corner of the door frame. ........on a plus side it is a very nice bit of eye candy for a sunday afternoon

Natures beauty. Makes you feel glad inside. Well caught.

Comment by: Jean F (Wales) on 9th November 2014 at 14:02

Absolutely gorgeous David.


A real "wow" pic.

Comment by: Dave (Oy) on 9th November 2014 at 20:26

Lovely shot pal!

Comment by: Jonno on 9th November 2014 at 20:59

Mick (aka David Bailey) when WILL you say something positive about someone elses photos, i've gone back through Nov and Oct and given up, i didn't find one instance of praise, you either say something negative, or, on occasions you do give good information about where to find certain things, but even that doesn't amount to a positive statement about the photo.

Comment by: Mick on 9th November 2014 at 21:18

Jonno Im just telling the truth about the photo and about if it was as good as a lot are trying to make out that finger post wouldnt have been in the shot.

You can bet if Oy had taken it it woudnt have been there he would have moved a bit to the left so it would have been behind the tree

Comment by: irene roberts on 9th November 2014 at 22:22

The photo is so stunning that I never even saw the finger-post until it was pointed out. "You can please some of the people some of the time" etc...... None of us are trained photographers on Wigan World; we are just ordinary people with a love and pride in our local scenes, warts and all. We see the doughnut, not the hole.

Comment by: Maureen on 9th November 2014 at 22:32

Some people could pick holes in a colander..and some people are so jealous of other peoples work that they can't for the life of them praise anybody else's work as I've pointed out to them before now.

Comment by: Joe on 9th November 2014 at 23:38

Brill....Brill...Just let me sit down on fallen leaves and eat mi butties slowly....

Comment by: Jonno on 10th November 2014 at 01:35

Ok Mick, that's as it may be, but i see Oy has commented with 'Lovely shot pal', we know he is a good photographer but he didn't pick holes in it, or run it down.

Comment by: Mick on 10th November 2014 at 08:06

Jonno, I only said what spoils it for me is the direction finger post being in view and offered some good advise how to take a better photo and yes Oy did say Lovely shot pal, he always say that to his cameramen mates on Wiganworld but on his own forum he used to tell people who put up photos the honest truth about how to the photo and how they could have taken it better.

Irene, if your not a trained photographer how come you can make comments as though you are, and like you say you never even noticed the finger post.

Maureen, Me jealous ah ah flaming ah

Comment by: Helen on 10th November 2014 at 08:38

I didn't see the fingerpost either, even now I know its there it doesn't spoil the scene for me. Its still a great photo.

Maureen's right, some people can pick holes in a colander !!

Comment by: Giovanni on 10th November 2014 at 09:11

Great shot! This could be an entry for the Countryfile calendar!

Comment by: truwigana on 10th November 2014 at 10:05

Comment by: truwigana on 10th November 2014 at 10:06

Comment by: David on 10th November 2014 at 12:59

Comment by: Paul on 11th November 2014 at 12:59

Comment by: John B on 12th November 2014 at 16:25
