I've stood by these locks a number of times Sam waiting for the mist to clear and it to stop raining!

Even so, my shot would've been rubbish compared to this beauty!

Brilliant ol' son!

I don't accept your negative assumption Jethro re what results you might have achieved here had the mist lifted but I appreciate the compliment my friend, thank you .

regards, Sam

Zanot10,, this just goes to show what a clown you really are. Your own insecurities cause you to add your worthless copy and paste comments to images here on Panoramio in order to bring attention to yourself. The majority of people here on Panoramio are normal decent people fortunately and will of course out of politeness respond to your comments by way of adding something to one of your images which of course makes your actions seem worthwhile though regrettably will fuel your misbeliefs that the comments left are worth having. Well if all you want is to see your viewing and like figures rise then yes your adding such senseless comments around the site will get you that result. But think about it another way and you may see things differently... every hundred comments you leave won't generate 100 comments in return since there are those amongst Panoramio who like me realise what your game is and wouldn't normally respond, plus there are those who may not have time . So then let's assume you get back 90 replies which of course makes you believe your actions were worthwhile and superficially they will make your images appear very popular. Now in reality what you have done is given out more insincerity than you have received and this then means that your viewing and like statistics are less valuable than they were . It's like a government simply printing out more money when times get tough, it helps initially but the value of that currency just gets weakened. Out of pity for your losses I came and added ten of your own copy and paste comments to your 10 most recent pictures without really looking at them because I knew how much they would mean to you. Today I find you've given them back to me on my pictures and so I now must be a great photographer like you because I have lots of comments , I do hope you ticked the likes and didn't just say it ;o).

You know it makes no sense my little Panoramio friend but of course we both know you will continue to do it anyway :o)

best wishes, Sam

Nice grass - like & fav ;)

Seriously though - :) :)

Unfortunately I am one of those people that feel duty bound to respond to these comments :( I have been into photgraphy for a very short time , and on panoramio even less, but I soon realised the game. Unfortunately though I am one of those that just feels they have to go and try find pictures to respond to :( :(

The 'see the best in people' side of me just takes over and says its just maybe a language thing and they have to copy and paste - but in reality I do know the game :(

ok - have detracted from your fine picture :)

I dont think there is anything more pleasant than spending the day bringing a narrow boat up a flight of locks :)

You have captured the charm and tranquillity perfectly

Best wishes Dean

Your charitable attitude to these people Dean is to be applauded in one sense but frowned upon in another since it just encourages them when they see a response though you must do what feels right to you. I am encouraged to read the gentle atmosphere comes across in this.

many thanks and best wishes, Sam
