Great picture Mick. Is it misty,or is that industrial haze?
....an afterthought, the previous was not intended as criticism, simply interest.

Industrial haze ? With the greatest respect Ellen, how long have you been away ? There is no industry around here any more, not heavy industry at any rate, a certain lady from Grantham saw to that. The chimney that you can see issuing vapour, or whatever, is the boilerhouse at the infirmary.
Cracking photo Mick, as good a sunset shot as any I've seen on here.

Regards. Ozy.

Great photo Mick. I have sat at the side of the Hall and enjoyed this view many times.
Ellen, we don't make things in this country anymore, We make our living by screwing things together for other countries and laundering dodgy money for wealthy Russians.

Or in the case of bankers and politicians, by screwing things up. Nice to hear from you again DTease.

Regards. Ozy.

I posted a response to Ozymandias yesterday, which seems to have lost
it's way somewhere over the Atlantic!
..it was to the effect of "short answer,-50 years as of October," and
begging forgiveness for my ignorance.
