Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 27th January, 2019)
And Rivington pike.
Mick. This is a fantastic photo, it is breathtaking, some folks think your nuts but this will silence all the critics.
Thats a good one Mick. It shows Haigh Hall in relation to its surroundings. Twixt the hills & township.
Good one Mick, where did you take this one from ? Scholes area, some high vantage point. Rivington Pike appears to be looking over Th'alls shoulder but in fact it is much further away, trick of the camera eh ! Like it !
Have I got my bearings right here? That looks like Rivington Pike to the right above the hall.
A brilliant photo mick its lovely all of the surroundings. Especially of haigh hall thankyou Mick its brightened me up.
Two of the nicest views of favourite places. Southerners wouldn't believe the lovely countryside around Wigan, Horwich and Bolton. They still think we have factory chimneys belching smoke!
Yes,he is nuts and jealous,if someone else had put this photo on he would be pulling it to pieces,make no mistake.
Its taken from Little lane railway bridge.
Lovely photo Mick I used to live 10 mins walk from Haigh Hall, Afternoon Tea there is very nice indeed.y
Lovely shot, Mick.
Good 'un this Mick, is that Marlybone/Leyland Mill Lane, Douglas Valley in the foreground. Where did you take this from ?
Little Lane, is that the Pemberton Little Lane Mick ? It crops up in my family history.
I think quite a few of the French Impressionists would have taken a crack at this.
What a blesséd vantage point is Winter hill and what stunning contrasts can be seen from there. Stand here on a cold January day when the sky is a dome of lapis lazuli and the sun orange and behold the far horizons. Last Wednesday,on such a day, with snow lying across the moor, I saw in one instance the hustling Manchester skyline and with a mere turn of the head the majesty of the Lakeland mountains shrouded in snow. Quite remarkable that you can look down into Wigan and see the Isle of Man at the same time.
Splendid hill. Splendid photo.
A nice piece Poet. 'Across the moor' -Lovely.
You are dead right Susan. Anyone else posting this and he would have been ripping it to shreds.
Not forgetting the tops of the Welsh Mountains Poet. The photo reminds me of childhood days at Haigh Hall and grown up days around 'Rivvy'... The sunsets from the Pyke are marvellous...
That's a nice shot.
He's still nuts :)
Yip a fruit and nut case pulling the trigger, but nice shot.
Mike , fantastic. Thank you.
That IS a brilliant shot Mick.. but you are still nuts! :-)
Dennis if you had leaned your bike against the railway bridge and stood on crossbar to get the view, you could easily have got the same brilliant shot.
An all in photo excellent Mick, you still can't spell though!
Must be a penny farthing then, mick.
Not a very clear shot is it though. Looks like it's been taken through a pair of tights.
What a great picture. I love it.
It would be nice to know which "Little Lane" this was taken from.
Ha ha ha Tony what are you like.
Tony I agree with you but thats the best I could manage with my little camera, but if your looking for a photo more in focus have a look at the next days photo of the New Pub foundations and the pile of sand.
I'm surprised the photo is as clear as it is with the distance involved between Haigh Hall and Rivington Pike! ( I'm no photographer!)
