It's there above town all the time , always visible. As Stuart Maconie says the Pike is to Wigan as is Skiddaw to Keswick.
Splendid Ron.

Very well composed - the trees make a good frame for The Pike with a nice border of Hawthorns to round off.

Great shot, Ron.

Very well composed.

I'm sure it would have waited if it had known you were coming Mick.

A nice photo Ron. And for my further delectation, perhaps, also, a 'bird's nest with eggs', sometime next year; your choice, of course.

I understand the Magpie returned shortly after your departure Mick.

We're on the same 'drift' Poet, but Bourne, was it not? Thanks.
