Is there something on fire.

Comment by: Neil Rigby on 21st December 2014 at 00:14

Beautifully evocative of past times.

Foggy or not, that spire is now as straight as a string. Nice one.

Really unusual and very atmospheric. Used to watch the sunset behind the spire from my grandad's house in Holt Street. Happy days.Folowing Helen's lead, a very merry and trouble free Christmas to all.

Good shot David

Just a little short on detail and contrast but still nice.

Very atmospheric! Reminds me of foggy days in my childhood, when the fog was dense and icy and seemed to deaden all sound; you could almost "hear" the silence and could hardly see your hand in front of your face, and the lit-up window of the corner shop was a welcome beacon. Thanks to Helen and Neil for good wishes, to which I add my own.

A blank screen. That happens to my glasses when I go in the kitchen when the wife boiling spuds.

The church is really in Birkett Bank and not Scholes.

Bellissimo David!

A wonderful shot. Very atmospheric and in keeping with the time of year.
Here's wishing you all a Merry Xmas and salute!

That would have been a very familiar sight for me as a child in winter - living at the bottom of the brew in Belvoir St.
