Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 31st October, 2019)
Trouble is with living in up market Shevy, if you ride a push bike you have to peddle up this hill to get home.
This hole was once the clay pit that the Appley Bridge took out the clay to make Bricks, the brick wprks was once a popular place for the tramps to make bed down for the night.
Not well up on Appley Bridge. Can you give us a bit more detail Mick?
I think the idea of these leccy bikes Mick is that you're meant to recharge the battery from time to time , it makes pedalling uphill that much easier......and what's with these adverts that have started appearing on here recently ?
Sorry Mick, too much sky!
Ozy where did you buy your bike? mine being serviced at Winstanleys this week, my chain broke and on inspection all the gears need replacing
Its only because there was no cloud on that day Dave.
It's a bit of a long story actually Mick , but when did I ever use ten words when a hundred would suffice ? We need to have a chat.
I'll keep an eye open for you knocking about.
Dave0....yes I suppose you could say there is to much sky for pic composition but here where I live we are used to seeing lots of sky, no high rise buildings & the North Sea in front etc....up further north in the Fens its flat & I mean flat & it seems to be all sky, Mick would like riding his bike there !
Helen I used to work offshore and seen a lot of North Sea and Norfolk views
Thats interesting Mick....we can see a red & white ship offshore that services the oil rigs & these days there are 3 wind farms on the horizon all 3 can be seen on a good day.
Big skies are at their best when the clouds are rolling by, big and dramatic. Keep an eye open for them Mick..
Veronica best place Ive seen big skies and big thundery clouds is in the Java Sea.
In the rainy season they would come rolling in every night at around 6pm just as the sun was setting, then it would start t0 chuck it down.
Mick , I'm sure you've seen better
but once upon a time I saw the earth disappear behind my upraised thumb .
You would Buzz from where you went.
Not been so far in my travels Mick, but would have liked to go on pilgrimage to the Burma Railway and other places up river, where the prisoners gave their lives. They would have experienced the Monsoons in the camps as you know and suffered terribly from all kinds of diseases. God rest their souls.
Ive been a couple of times Veronica to the river Kwai bridge and the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery.
We once walked across the bridge and on another visit crossed it by train.
It must be a very sad place to go to. Sad for the ones who did come back as well - having to live with the memories. xx
