Thanks Billy. I am glad to have tried this and it has given me some ideas for the future. Now where do I find a tripod? :)

It's funny you should mention Linhope Spout, Paul, but after I mapped this I had a look to see what other photos were taken nearby and found one of the Spout. I realised that I had been there before, many moons ago, and had taken some B&W shots. On those shots it was getting quite dark and having metred for the vegetation which resulted in the water being totally blown.

Thanks for your comments and for reminding me I have to go back to Linhope Spout.

Greetings from Blyth ("Northumberland's Premier Port")

Hi Guys, hope you don't mind me butting in. I used to have lots of 35mm photos of Linhope Spout & surrounding area, as i went rather frequently (local lady freind) but unfortunately I think I left them with her!

I was very fond of the farm buildings at the end of the road, before the hike / track up to the spout. The pines up the hill too, but the spout bottom is a marvelous place for reflections and shodows on thr exposed rock.

So long ago, so fresh in the mind

But away, matey. It seems that Linhope Spout evokes memories in all of us! When I was there I had gone with Mum, Dad, and my Auntie Linda, who are all now RIP. It was a great day and I am now determined to go back soon.

Our little Escort is "in a state" but not big enough for the trike I fear.

I didn't think you were hinting, mate. In fact I guessed that your pointing out that Peter's car is an estate was your subtle way of telling me it wasn't a hint. Hey, it's Thursday! See you later.

I must admit to rather bad manners Keith as my original intention was to praise your 'Water on stone 1' but I lost the plot! (often happens with me!)

The turbulent water as it rolls over the boulder, then sucks down under the creamy ripple of oxygenated frothy spume is reminiscent of ones life's ups and downs-one moment gasping for breath, the next-enjoying a surfiet of everything good.

The brilliant colours in the wateras if disolved into the blue, like colours in a stick of blacpool rock!-te gtlossy shine on the surface, frozen in the instant of capture by yourflicking shutter, all these are captured for all time. I have had Immense enjoyment from my second view of this one, looking forward to my next visit!

Thanks Keith ----Mike

skida on October 12, 2008

Many thanks for your lyrical interpretation Mike. I intend to go back soon with a tripod (thanks!).

Thanks for your kind comment, Epi.

trikermike on October 31, 2008

YES, Keith, Ilike it too marra, very much, particularly the way one's eye rolls over and own to the bottom of the pic, only to slide alond the edge of the stone, thentumble under the torrent again, beforeslipping off the farright of the picture, mmmmmm.

Absolutely amazing, mate!

Mike

skida on October 31, 2008

Thanks Mike. I wonder when the weather is going to let us out again?

skida on November 26, 2009

My abject and humble apologies, Bruce. Your excellent comment got missed so my reply is extremely tardy!

Many thanks, Keith
