Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 1st November, 2018)
THIS IS THE BEST PIC.I HAVE SEEN' OF wigan PIER
Great photo to wake up to. Love the colours so dramatic! Wigan pier at its best.
That is a stunning image. I am truely impressed !
I agree with ALBERT parr !! Well done Paul its a fantastic photo !
Superb a belter
Paul...that is just a beautiful shot.,no other word for it.
I agree with Albert. Very atmospheric! I feel like putting my scarf and gloves on, so well does it give aa sense of chill!
THAT is a stunning shot of the canal and Pier.
Well done, Paul.
Of the deepening dusk,
I am the ochre window bleeding light
Like Sirius in the western sky!
Guiding the traveller in from Leeds.
Tie up and supper with me this night
There's plenty of pie and ale to be had.
The tall ships lie straight ahead
By the first morning light.
This must be one of the best photos of Wigan Pier that I have ever seen!
Wigan Pier at its best - a romantic image if ever there was!
Very nice pic Paul. Slow shutter from the F/18 smoothing the water out nicely.
And I am very impressed by Poets verse too !
Isn't that just perfect.
Im afraid I have to disagree with you PAD experts, because Ive seen far better photos taken of Wigan Pier reflections by Dave Oy Green, were you wouldnt know which way is the right way up
Despite what moaning Mick says I agree with everyone else that this is a belting photo.
For God's sake give credit where it's due!
Steady on, Michael: Water reflections are always a couple of tones darker than the object being reflected and, as such, are easily discernible from the object . . . .
Paul. A smashing Photo'.
A boatman's view of pearly greys
And ageing-building's, meet,
Come steady heave of billowed sails
From heaven's rolling Fleet.
Thank you all so much for you lovely and kind comments.
As for Mick, I hope I can one day reach those loft heights of your expectations.
Photography is a journey and I'm enjoying learning it.
Pictures of Wigan Peir always draw me back to my home town, none more so than this exception photograph.
How did we all know you were going to say that, Mick? Great minds think alike, that's why.
Poet...with your permission I would like to send your poem to a friend, only with your permission.
I am no expert Mick but I know a good thing when I see it.
Britboy please feel free . I'm most flattered. Kind regards.

How noble of you Paul - I hope you send more examples of your obvious talent for photography. The picture is like a breath of fresh air- don't let anyone put you off!
It's a superb image,well done,Mick post a load of rubbish,and too much of it.
Yes, it is a brilliant photo,the colours are reflected beautifully.
Fantastic photograph . Welcome back Poet.
Everyone has already said it; it’s absolutely blooming beautiful. Like you Irene, it makes me want to reach for my gloves and scarf!
Glorious photograph Paul, and with Poet’s poem to complement it, it’s just perfect. Thank you.
Good shot, but beware the
BRILLIANT, 11 out of ten.
I like your verse, and in particular the easy shift from Leeds to Liverpool, while the 'sentinelesque' opening line couldn't have been more welcoming.
Wow! what a dramatic picture - excellent shot
