Must have been up early... it's very similar to a sunrise near me.
Always awesome though.

Just short of a Totem Pole in that field...I can hear the echoes of the Injuns chanting - such atmosphere....

And God created light, and lo! there was light and the sun rose over Shevington and Mick saw the light and he saw that it was good. And Mick took a piccy of the light and he saw that the piccy was good and lo! he did show his piccy to his neighbours and they saw that it was good also and they sayeth unto him "go forth o Mick and share thy piccy with thy fellow man. And Mick did as they bade him.
Seriously though Mick, that's a good "Piccy".

Mick If it had a few giraffes on it, it could in the Kalahari

Alan: I can appreciate what you say, but you have not factored in to your equations that it’s Shevington.
The sun shines brighter, the roses are bigger, ( I think that’s because of the manure round there) things happen around Shevington a lot quicker and better than any where else around Wigan.
And Mick captures all this so we can look at the awesome splendour.

That's right John G they can even hold back the dawn in Shevvy, so Mick can take his photos. It's the Parish Council that's in charge you see.

Sit back with your palette and dampen your noise ,
Breathe through your nostrils that give you your poise ,
Reach out for nothing
your table is set ,
Wash then your canvas , your sky waits to get ..

Belter that Mick.

Comment by: John G on 2nd February 2022 at 18:12

Joan: You could be right, I’am sure I’ve spotted a lion in that pampas grass (Kalahari hey). Could be sticking your neck out with a Giraffe.

Why do people snipe it is a good picture just appreciate the beauty of our world

Comment by: Rev David Long on 2nd February 2022 at 22:11

You're right, annemarie - it's a belting pic - but I still think it's a holiday snap from Mick's Serengeti Safari....

Comment by: Veronica on 2nd February 2022 at 23:04

John G don't forget the Buffaloes. They like roaming about.

Comment by: John G on 2nd February 2022 at 23:40

That’s it Rev David, when I first saw it the Serengeti went through my mind for a split second, Yes Veronica Buffaloes do like to roam, I’am partial to a good roam my self when I get the chance.
But there’s no Dung any where, not even a cow pat!

Comment by: Veronica on 3rd February 2022 at 00:02

There's no such thing as dung and cow pats in Shevvy..... God forbid! The mere mention will cause palpitations on the Parish Council...

Comment by: The Real James Hanson on 3rd February 2022 at 09:37

As sure as Parbold Hill rises like Olympus above the Motorway.

Comment by: Veronica on 3rd February 2022 at 12:12

That's very profound Mr Hanson. Whichever one you are... ;~)

I'm the 'real' one, Veronica.
