Looks cold! It reminds me of foggy days in my childhood when everything went still and silent.

Very gloomy -need to wrap up well!

A splendid day for a prowl.

Comment by: Garry on 7th January 2018 at 10:41

Yip I'll go along with irene.
Ghostly and eerie.

Very good Steve, it has a mysterious quality to it.

At first look I thought I saw the back of a man on a bike peddling up the tow path, but now the image as gone.

Nice setting for a B movie - The Creature from The Bog!
I can remember days like this in fifties when you couldnt see more than 2 yards!!
Great atmospheric pic, well done lad!!

I Can remember years ago my photos turned out something like that, it was called Camera Exposure lol.
But no this one, this is great.

Steve very brave to go out in that weather dedication well done. Irene well done to remember the nineteen twenties. Roll on summer Benidorm next month.

I remember these days as a little boy, wander off into the local farmers fields when a heavy mist was laying two to three feet deep across the field like a blanket.
Used to lie down and to anyone else you just disappeared like magic lol.
One of many childhood days worth remembering

If you get the weather in this country, no other country can match it. For a start, drinking water out of bottles because the tap water is not clean. That says it all for me.

Comment by: Garry on 7th January 2018 at 13:55

Jims a fool, irene describes the seen perfectly.

Comment by: Jim tomney on 7th January 2018 at 14:28

Gary I like to have banter with Irene no malice intended I hope she knows that sorry if I have offended anyone.

Comment by: irene roberts on 7th January 2018 at 15:54

Of course you'll remember the Victorian Pea-Soupers, young Jim! Alan and I don't always see eye-to-eye but I totally agree with him on this post.There's nowhere nicer than our own island, especially if you can get good weather, and bottled water in this country is the biggest con going...there is nothing wrong with water from the tap. Keep a jug in the 'fridge.

Comment by: Mick on 7th January 2018 at 16:15

When ones not been and seen any other places one would think the British isles is the best

Comment by: Veronica on 7th January 2018 at 16:26

I too agree with Alan - there's nowhere as nice as this country if the weather is good. I can vouch for that. The water from our taps I don't agree with - bottled water can be sitting on supermarket shelves for years! I like tap water (courtesy of Rivington) after the tap is left to run and icy cold!

Comment by: irene roberts on 7th January 2018 at 18:18

I have been to France and Greece, Mick, so I HAVE given "abroad" a chance. I can understand people going for guaranteed warmth and sunshine, but it did nothing for me. That's not to say I am right and they are wrong....we just have different points of view and we are entitled to them. Jim, of course I didn't take offence; I like a bit of banter. However, Garry didn't know that and I appreciate his concern. Sorted, Gentlemen! xx.

Comment by: Alan on 7th January 2018 at 18:19

Thank you to irene and Veronica, we agree for once x.

Comment by: Alan on 7th January 2018 at 18:28

Mick that could be right, some folk may not have been abroad, but all you have to do is switch on the TV and watch the News.

Comment by: Anne on 7th January 2018 at 20:12

I both agree and disagree concerning visiting foreign parts. There are sights, spectacle, history and amazingly beautiful places abroad. Having said that I wouldn't live anywhere else other than here. As for using bottled water I don't remember needing to use it anywhere.

Comment by: Howard P on 8th January 2018 at 13:29

I totally agree with Alan, I suspect he's right.

Comment by: Elizabeth on 8th January 2018 at 16:56

Very atmospheric.Reminds of being let out of school earlier to get the bus as the buses stopped running when it was foggy.

Comment by: Maureen on 9th January 2018 at 11:31

We had a bad spell of fog in the 70s /80s ..I was driving home from work..it was such an effort to get to Gidlow Lane traffic lights,.just couldn't see them,then looking for our house I had to keep stopping to see where I lived, I really don't know how I got home without there being a catastrophe..it was after nine in the evening so not too much traffic thank God.
