Photo-a-Day (Friday, 23rd August, 2019)
Rabbit Rocks Tarn
Is this photo of The Rabbit Rocks in Ince?? Why does it say "singaporemick YouTube" in the bottom right-hand corner?
A surprising scene. Like a stumbled upon discovery. Is it carped or tenched I wonder?
Quite a change from you, Mick; A bird's-eye view of your subject.
I don't think Mr. Crabtree ever studied a swim from so high a position.
Great shot Mick ,
Some nice shrubs amongst that lot - purposely planted or otherwise.
Philip G - My husband rooted out his copy of ‘Mr Crabtree Goes Fishing’ last week, as he was taking our grandson fishing.
A lovely book and a snapshot of bygone times.
Excellent, Pat, most excellent - I hope that they both had a good days fishing.
I'm now reminded of the moment when Mr Crabtree suggested the tail end of a tasty lobworm as bait, and to then set his float close to the flooded river's bank thus allowing his tasty to join other such tasties washed from the bank earlier.
I always found the book's b/w ink illustrations to be more magnetic than those printed in colour - The former now romantic. And Oh the occasion when Mr. Crabtree returned a splendid fish(?) to the water so as to become a twenty-pounder.
Philip, our imagination added colour to the black and white illustrations.
That's right Pat: B/w's for wild imagining ~ ~ ~ ~ Crikey!, was that a grey heron that fled my ashen path just then . . . By Jove.
