Automasters Week #8 of 8


This week (and a day) has been devoted to a series of photographs of Automasters.

Here we look again from the Manchester Road bridge, over the Peak Forest Canal, past the willow trees at the emptiness where once stood the mighty Automasters factory.

Check back if you will at this same scene With the sky reflected in the still waters of the canal, today's photograph is our contribution this week to Skywatch Friday.

Without the reflection one would have thought it was totally overcast. Clever to reveal the real condition through a reflection :)

what a very nice reflection.

I do like this. I like this a lot. I liked the others too, very still images, but this just tops them. To me the Norwegian bloggers are the masters of reflections. RuneE's knows he's stuff despite his protests he's a snapper.

It's amazing what a little greenery can do to make even such an industrial place look pretty.

The reflection of the sky in the river is just perfect!
