Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 25th March, 2015)
Andrew this is fantastic,I ve always wondered what the Bell Tower was like. Thank you.
Its no wonder Andrew that they sound as bad as they do, the wheel on the left looks buckled.,
Wigan Parish Church Bells March 22, 2015
Thank you Andrew for a view few people have seen.
No, not buckled. Look a little farther and you will see other "buckling" owing to the lens used.
Excellent once again Andrew.
that's a great picture!!I like how the light is coming in .
Are we seeing the use of HDR here Andrew?
Great pic Thomaso
Any bats in residence!! LOL
Tommy, no HDR used - just a very long exposure and a bit of help from the light from my phone.
Garry - it isn't. It's a straight shot that you are so fond of.
Well done Andrew lad.
See photo #24313, first on 3rd row in Places, Parish Church Wigan.
For more photo`s of the bell room and bell ringing room taken by Brian, see New Gallery, Wigan Parish Church.
You can listen to these bells on You Tube, see :-
Don`t like your photo Andrew - too `distorted`
I know what you mean, Ernest! Unfortunately the only way I could get the whole view was with a fisheye lens which does indeed distort the view. Having said that, it was going dark with little light in there and there may be another viewpoint that I couldn't see at the time - I'll have a look later in the summer and report back!
Thanks for that Andrew; are we going to have a summer though!
The bells have not been used for years i was told when working on the copper roof in the sixties it is a recorded sound.
Dave, thankfully, the bells are used very week!
