Snow covered farmland at dusk

My Throwback Thursday post this week is possibly the oldest colour slide in my files.

On editing this digital copy I realised that it wasn’t very sharp and that the lens used had very bad vignetting. In fact the corners were so dark with the vignetting that I cropped them out. This makes me think that the original slide was taken in the mid 1970s with the Zenit E camera and a wide angle lens I had when in secondary/high school.

Hunt’s Locks

Throwback Thursday travels back to the winter of 1979/80 and a walk along a section of the the Weaver Navigation.

These are Hunt’s Locks (or Hunts Locks depending on the reference you use) on the Weaver Navigation in Northwich, Cheshire.

The small lock was built circa. 1860 and the large lock circa. 1890. The Weaver Railway Viaduct that crosses the River Weaver is in the background.

Autumn Colour in Early Snow

Throwback Thursday travels back to southern Cheshire in the early 1990s.

An early snowfall while lots of the trees still had their leaves. With the weather conditions I headed to Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire for some photos.

I must have been standing on the edge of the sandstone ridge to get this photo looking down into the shallow valley below.
