A River Lune watercolour!

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This rather romanticised view looking North East along the River Lune near Caton in Lancashire is reminiscent of the paintings of this area by our famous artist William Turner 1775-1851. In the background can be seen the hills of the Yorkshire Dales. Another picture that must be seen large to fully appreciate!

Enjoy, Herb

Moon, welcome to my gallery. Yes, inspired by a painting and has that same look, and so we are both happy. Please call again.

John, welcome to my gallery to you as well. Very happy indeed to see that this one has sparked of old memories for you. This was my computer wallpaper until just some days ago. Be my guest and try it on yours! Special thanks for the awards. Look forward to seeing you again.

Hi Herb. Yes it does look like a good water colour. Nice picture, did you take it on that walk with us some time ago? Good sharp photo. John.

Herb Riddle on July 21, 2013

Hi John, always nice to see you here in Panoramioland. No, this was taken on a later trip, in July 2012. (You can see when and what time most of my photo's were taken by clicking on the 'Extra Information' beneath the 'Photo Details' box, to the right of each picture.) It was taken in early evening when all was quite. There is more info on my introduction just below the photo too.

Cheers, Herbert
