Going cheap if anyone is interested.

Interesting cloud formation, Fairygirl. Although it normally signifies rubbish weather, they are still artistic in their way.

Thanks, Lily.....I actually took the photograph as an entry for my local camera club competition, the theme being 'autumn tints'. It was the reflected autumn leaved trees in the water that caught my eye.

For what it's worth, it's   one of the only two prints I have ever sold and hangs in the waiting room of a local chiropodist......the other (different shot) hangs in my dentists waiting room.

 I feel lucky to have this beautiful old bridge within a couple of miles of where I live.

Its history reads: "Essex Bridge (grid reference SJ995225) is a Grade I listedpackhorse bridge over the River Trent near Great Haywood, Staffordshire, England.

Spanning the Trent 100 metres downstream of its confluence with the River Sow, it was built in 1550 by the then Earl of Essex a favourite of Queen Elizabeth I. The Earl lived nearby at Chartley Castle. It is now the longest remaining packhorse bridge in England with fourteen of its original forty round span arches left,:129 and has been described as "perhaps the least altered old bridge in the county"

The bridge carries the long-distance footpath The Staffordshire Way over the River Trent, linking the Trent and Mersey Canal tow-path with the bridleway through the Shugborough estate to Cannock Chase.

The bridge is also a Scheduled Ancient Monument."


I'd like to share my pictures with you all

Crikey, that seems to have been a quick pregnancy.......time passes so quickly.

Anyway, best wishes to Mum, Dad & Baby and especially to Nan, Lily. xx

Btw, girl babies are the best......IMHO, of course.
