Winter Hill  by bluefirebucket

Winter Hill

Winter Hill, Lancashire with it's TV and communications masts. There probably aren't too many places in Lancashire from where this can't be seen and for as long as I can remember it's been my personal beacon that I'm nearly home.
Like yourself, Mick, me and my family always knew we were close to home as soon as we'd see the masts up on Winter Hill :-) I love everything about this shot....it's a fav! :-)

@allisonrap Thanks Allison, especially for another fav, I had to stand in front of my car so I didn't get blown over!

It was always Emley Moor for me. :)
Love how the road leads through the frame to the mast. Nice shot. :)

@humphreyhippo Ah! another Northerner doing missionary work in the South! :D
@jolefont well there have been several reports of ufo sightings up there Jo Ann - and a plane crash, a murder and there are a couple of bronze age burial mounds - so ghosts a plenty I guess!
@zonnestraaltje It's certainly a good place to be in the summer Agnes - not sure about today though :)
@lorraineb Thank you Lorraine - atmospheric is just the euphemism that I would have used too - it was flippin' cold, wet & windy!! :)

I like beacons even if they are radio masts!

Beautiful and dramatic! Love the B&W tones!

@zonnestraaltje Thanks again Agnes :)
@maggiemae Thanks Maggiemae, I wonder if there was a fuss about spoiling the view like there would be if they were being built now?
@myautofocuslife Cheers Livia, I think I'm beginning to like B&W shots a lot - there'll be more!

Love this and it will become one of my fav's. I love how the clouds hang across the sky following the hills. We have a similar beacon called Telstra Tower and if you can see that, you are heading in the right direction.

Beautiful :)

@redpants Thank you Sue
@joluise Winter Hill is one of those places that's used as a barometer as in "if you can't see it it must be raining - if you can see it then it'll be raining soon"! :)
