Another good one Dennis.
Up th'Iven.
The position on the canal is where I first attempted to fish with a rod. Caught one roach.

A nice, homely scene. Good one, Dennis.

Nice one that :)

Now are 'we' sure this is New Springs.?
If it is it's very nice... at least it's not a mud bath today with horses thinking of running off to other greener fields!

Well to be absolutely honest, I cant see how some folk can say this photo is lovely to me its just a photo of some bracken and the back end of a barn, pile of muck and a couple of storage containers.
I bet the locals living up on that hill don't thinks it lovely when they look out of their windows

Yer gerrin’ fed up now aren’t you Veronica? Go on admit it yer gerrin’ fed up. I think somebody is going to get the sharp end of your tongue in a bit aren’t they?
I hope it’s not me!

What's not to like about this photo, we are all gerrin fed up DTease. We have yet to see a positive from Mick.

Comment by: Eileen on 10th February 2022 at 13:44

Yes,you're right Edna,it is a lovely area.We are all more than fed-up of Mr.Negativity (unless of course it's Shangri-la Shevy)

Comment by: Elizabeth on 10th February 2022 at 13:45

I agree Edna,what's not to like? A lovely area.

Is this the same Mick who posted yesterday "I've always enjoyed rural life ..."

Comment by: e on 10th February 2022 at 13:57

A life with its season ,
my rod and my reason ,
to sit there all day ,
my Buddha pose stay ,
at one with God’s treasures ,
the water , cloud pleasures ,
and gaze into this ,
my water my bliss ,
and perhaps land a beauty ....what more...

It's the armchair back packers Dtease and the 'ordinance' surveyors, plus the moaning mon....
Look at the sheep munching on the lush green grass, I wouldn't mind looking onto that from a bedroom window. There's some lovely scenery in that area and no motorway slap bang in the middle. Watch this space for contradictions!

Comment by: Helen of Troy on 10th February 2022 at 14:15

Ah Mick ! Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder & I behold a pleasant & peaceful rural scene.....& to coin another phrase...one man's meat etc etc

Comment by: Mick on 10th February 2022 at 14:22

Just one word WOW

Comment by: Veronica on 10th February 2022 at 14:24

It's not surprising some very decent photographers have given up posting photos - Dave Oy especially and Harry who posted lovely ones as well. They are sadly missed. It's had a knock on effect because their 'fans' don't seem to comment either. I hope Dennis doesn't lose the will to keep posting and David.

Comment by: Tom on 10th February 2022 at 15:26

I was told that Dave Oy set up a photo a day on another Wigan website called the Wigan Peers, here is a link. https://wigan-peers.forumotion.com/t5481p125-wigan-borough-oypad

Comment by: Veronica on 10th February 2022 at 15:59

Yes Tom I've had a look, there's some beauties on there. And from other places in the world. There's a lot of posters from here on there as well. Not too keen on the set up but I suppose you get used to it.

Comment by: Tom on 10th February 2022 at 16:53

Ive just had a look V and to me it looks like a bit of a boring forum, Oys is trying is best to make it interesting by putting on some photos but not many of them seem to have the energy to make any genuine comments about the photos,
Like on today's photo it just says Lolly, Naughty Mitten and jo anne like this photo, and I think that's all done with one click of a button, so I think I will stay on WW were you get some good genuine comments especially from Mick.

Comment by: Veronica on 10th February 2022 at 17:40

Yes his photographs are exceptional and I noticed a photo on there from WW.! This site is easier and user friendly, more interesting to get round. Also a lot of stuff on here has been helpful to me with my ancestry... deaths and burials for one thing. Years ago I used to love looking at the Court Leet records. Loads of history. I have even found photos of my Grt grandparents which I treasure and my grandmother as a two year old. I would not have had those if I hadn't come on here, that is something I am thankful for.

Comment by: Lolly on 10th February 2022 at 19:32

Tom we are very lucky to have OY. He is a valued member.

Comment by: Lolly on 10th February 2022 at 20:17

Sorry I should have acknowledged Denis's photo. A lovely busy photo Dennis.

Comment by: irene roberts on 10th February 2022 at 20:23

A friend of mine who is an excellent photographer "gave up" on here a long time ago. He has emailed superb photos to me that he has sent up to p-a-d but they were never shown, and I have seen later photos that he hasn't bothered to send that most viewers would have loved. Such a shame.

Comment by: George (Hindley) on 10th February 2022 at 20:28

That's Ivy View, Bark Hill, Aspull.

Comment by: Jayne on 10th February 2022 at 20:55

Yes,known as Ivy Brow !

Comment by: Veronica on 10th February 2022 at 21:57

I remember your friend's photos Irene - they were very good.

Comment by: Edna on 12th February 2022 at 21:55

Nice poem e. I like it, very down to earth.
