Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 7th January, 2015)
Sunset and clouds
A very angry-looking sky! Did it
fulfill its promise of a storm?
Good one, but what a difference from your photo 29th November last year, which seems to have been taken from a very similar position.
Looks like theres a row of tall poplar tree on the right of the photo, I wonder if they are at Vause Farm Standish lower ground
Will someone photograph a bird please.
Feathered or skirted variety? LOL
Very dramatic Reverend.
It's the view from our bedroom window, Aubrey - an ever-changing vista, which was one of the reasons we bought the house. The building of the houses whose roofs run across the foreground was opposed quite strongly locally, and our first thoughts were that they took away some of our view. However, I've since learned that the trees which were cleared for the housing would have completely obscured the view for us.
Mick - the trees you mention are on Shevington Lane - somewhere around the High School, I think. Lower Ground is quite a way off to the left, and is in a dip, so I don't think we can ever see it.
It was very bright over that way earlier, and we could see Moel Famau quite clearly, as well as another mountain we've not been able to see before - I've yet to work out what it is. I took some pics with a telephoto lens, and could see the time on the clock at St Thomas' Upholland, and could just work out the tower of St James' Orrell, which is another first. I think it's obscured by leaves on the trees most of the time.
Through the bare trees in our neighbours' gardens we can just see the top of the towers of Fiddlers Ferry Power Station, and the spire of St Matthew's Highfield - but I can't get shots of them because the camera won't let me focus on anything beyond the trees.
Thanks for the info Rev, so that will mean our house is just to the left of the trees
Wonderful shot Rev David....cheers!!!
