photoblog image 400.....

400.....

I thought , 'Shall I do a bit of tomfoolery in Photoshop, then I thought ,No, give em what they deserve, a full frontal of the nether regions of Stockport made glorious by Sunrise' I'm all in favour of this cold snap we are going through if it keeps giving sunrises like this. Quite surreal! Gave this a pop of fil-flash to balance things out and when PP ing had to sort the balance out in match colour and then neutralised it. Big thanks (again) to all those who not only have popped in for a nosy but have been left comments on their blogs, I'm sorry, I'll up the meds......

Looks like the entrance to hell.
It is a terrific shot.
David Johnson: You could be right Michael, under the M60 and the terror of the 4 Heatons rolls out in front of you. This is the exact point where the Mersey starts and flows out through Liverpool to the sea.
A Tim Burton atmosphere as well !! Unreal.
David Johnson: Soon as I saw what sort of sunrise it was I knew this was the place to fight through the commuter traffic to get to!
Fantastic shot for your 400th! I never fail to be inspired by your work. (:o)
David Johnson: Why thanks Ros.!!

Just waiting to see the third horseman gallop by. Great shot and definitely worthy of a 400th post!
David Johnson: Probably being followed by some Speed cops, its that kind of area, actually this is the River Styx and if you listen closly you can hear Cerberus growling,actually as its Stockport its a Pit Bull terrier with an oversize studded leather collar,and you are usually transported into Hades in an Asda shopping trolley, a fine collection can be seen caught on the weir just below this statue....just take your pick!

Superb shot for number 400 David. We are getting the cold but not the glorious sunrise!
David Johnson: xtra nippy this morning Bill, but no clouds....sob.......but I might take a trek into Manchesteer to get som Xmas crap snapped
Congratulations on your 400th Max well done, not a duffer among them.

You must have been up before your breakfast for this one, well caught. Which is your tag?
David Johnson: Not too sure about the duffer thing...Iv had th tumbleweed roll across th screen, oh and it was a scrap with the commuters to get to this before it fizzled out!
