If you can dream…

Having returned to Bosley, I cannot drag myself away.  Following on from the previous post, here are some more images, including some of the residents. The black and white treatment changes the atmosphere completely but I think it remains Spring like:

On the embankment Towards The Cloud Lock 12 footbridge The Locals

I was always oddly proud of this local literary connection – due south of Bosley along the A523 is Rudyard Lake, another reservoir built to feed a canal, this time the Caldon.  John Lockwood Kipling and Alice Macdonald liked the place so much they named their son Rudyard (30 December 1865 – 18 January 1936).

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss……..

    Those clouds…and cows!

      Clouds and cows…….that’s pleasingly alliterative. It would have been even better if I could have found some cauliflower 🙂

      • LaVagabonde · May 7, 2014

        Or some crows.

      • northumbrianlight · May 7, 2014

        Or corncrakes

    What can I say… lovely images (in this post and in the previous post)
    Gotta love that cow and his pals :))
    He looks a little bit suspicious (I assume its a he).

    • northumbrianlight · May 7, 2014

      Thanks Malin – I think it was a he. There was an electric fence between us, maybe that explains his suspicion 🙂

      • Malin H · May 7, 2014

        Yes, that must be it… 😉

        OT: I remember (when I was a kid)… that I always forced myself to touch these electric fences… I don’t know why, but I did it (too many times).

        Brave girl – I was a wimp – I never touched them even once 😦

    The cloud reflections in the first photo are wonderful

    • northumbrianlight · May 7, 2014

      Many thanks Cate – it needs to be in black and white with a red filter – in colour they look oddly flat.

        When there is a sky full of clouds I always convert to black & white just to make them pop.

    Wow! Cool B&W shots! What a dreamy clouds reflection in the first pic! Gorgeous!

    Love that cow 🙂

    LOVE the cow picture!

      Many thanks, she is a popular young lady, or she could have been a he 🙂
