Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 9th May, 2018)
Photo: Steve Carter (Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ3)
You wouldnt think you was in Wigan when you see views like that.
What an absolutely beautiful view,it looks like a little fairy glen...it does me good just to look at it..food for the soul.Thank you Steve.
Not been there for many years but it seems to be on the walk down from the gates on Wigan Lane to the river.Is this correct, Steve?
Great photo, keep 'em coming.
Brings back so many memories, both of childhood and more recent years. The Plantations are part of all our lives in Wigan. That photo would make a very difficult jigsaw puzzle!
Such a familiar sight - never seems to change.
A smashing photo, Steve.
And perhaps in time, travellers might be able to make a 'stronger case' for what now appears to be the head of large wild animal, shown on the left and beneath what I think is a young sycamore tree ... those lovely greens do have an intoxicating effect.
Thats the artist in you Philip -you can see all kinds of things with imagination! ( I can see it too - its looks like a 'laid back lion');o))......
Phillip thats called Dead Man Rock, you can see the two eyes but the mouth an nose are getting covered by the trees.
Next time Im in there I will snap then off.
A laid-back lion?, Veronica.
I'd been considering the primates, and in particular the baboon. But as I've never stood before Dead Man's Rock, and because of who you are, ... I'll give way.
And what about Mick providing me with one of those electric ... 'things'; I hadn't known that the locals had chronicled this spooky image previously.
Don't forget your secateurs Mick, as further erosion should provide future travellers with more of the heebie-jeebies.
I'm sure there is nothing wrong with your eyes, Philip, or the artist in you as our Veronica says.....it's the beer that has the intoxicating effect....in fact I can see TWO lions! (Only joking!).
That's gives me an idea Irene- we could go on Safari- get the old Haigh Hall tractor going again!
Jeepers creepers, Veronica! On second thought (with continued regard for who you are) I believe you're right; it really does look like a lioness.
I can see a cat of some sort and I can see why it's called dead man rock, it also has a skull like resemblance.
Nice photo though.
I see an elephant - with a truncated trunk.
Thats settled then- Safari here we come! That'll stop the 'Barefoot Contessa' at the Hall in her tracks. ( I need to stop watching all these old films!)
Except "Brief Encounter", my dear! x.
I see an alien "grey!"
