Merry Christmas Martin,

Nearly all your photographs have held some extraordinary nostalgia, probably because I do not live in the Ashton Area or have done for the past 40 odd years.

In more ways than one your blogs have brightened our days when they have been dark.

We choose 22/08/09 Saturday in Saddleworth Delph Village closely followed by 2nd Photograph on the 21/07/09 White World, Cowhill Lane, St. James Church.

The later maybe because I am meltilng in 37 degrees C !!!!!

Many thanks for all the Blog Section, please keep it going for ever.

Regards and Best Wishes,
Dannyx6.

a winter waterside
Hi, Greeny. There were two that day. Did you mean the one with the boats or the one with the sun on the ice?

Hi Martin. There are lots of lovely photos shown, but my favourite one is St James` Church and Cowhill Lane in the snow. I`ve seen this view so many times over the years with living close by, and have always liked it.
I also clicked on the bird`s eye view under the photo, and moved it over to the left. Was delighted to see my back garden at the back of the church with our caravan plainly in view[ The farthest white object from the church in the row of gardens].

Decisions,decisions Martin. So many to choose from. If it was for beautiful natural colours i would choose Just Before Dawn 6 Feb 2009. But i have plumped for Sunday Stroll Diggle Locks 22 Feb 2009. The contrasting modes of transport,the gentle slow chugging along of the barge,being outpaced by the power of the Steam train.

As featured in your photo blog today Martin, Lily Lanes. Another snow scene of Lily Lanes featured in your blog on 8 Feb 2009.

There have been so many wonderful photos but, like Meg, I liked the St James picture as that's the church I was married in.

Thanks, Fudge. If anyone has not looked yet, the photo of St James Church in the snow was the winner.

I have shown a slightly modified version of the original. It is a matter of personal judgement whether these modifications have improved the image or not.
