Skwatch Friday: Looking down Gower Road

Someone called Alan who now lives in New Zealand asked me if I could photograph the view from outside 42 Gower Road looking towards the allotments, the valley of the Gower Hey Brook and Westend Lane in the far background.

Well here it is.

See the view in the opposite direction on Hyde DP Xtra.

A contribution to Skywatch Friday.


  1. Great post for SkyWatchFriday!

  2. Brrrrrr!! Cold, wintery skies and a great capture for the day, Gerald! Hope you have a good weekend -- stay warm!!

  3. Did your friend live there, great shot of the sky! Happy Skywatching!

  4. hello gerald - eileen from bolton here.
    what a beutiful photo. in one way it makes you shiver - but the warm glow from the sun going down on the left, reflected on the terraced houses in the right-hand background really makes the picture special.

    this area is really special to me and my family. our dad used to have an allotment in the distance to the left before the foxholes estate was built. then he had to share an allotment with friends near st. georges church where they had racing pigeons.

  5. Spring's down the road.

    Please have a good Friday.

  6. The pale sun is trying to cast some warm down the street! Lovely view in both directions.

  7. Beautiful light captured in the distance, great picture Gerald!

  8. Snow and low light - agreat combination.
