I'm not an expert photographer but when I'm out and about I've started to take my camera just to capture those little snippets of time and place.
And in wondering what to do with the pictures ----Picksipics was born
All the pics are taken with a little Fujifilm camera
No fancy lenses, no fiddling with shutter speeds and macro lens, just a little point and shoot
which shows it's not the camera , it's the person taking the picture that matters.
So with no apologies for style, presentation or technical ability
here are my picksipics
Lower Rivington Reservoir
The engineer for the Rivington reservoirs was Thomas Hawksley and construction took place between 1852 and 1857. The Lower Rivington reservoir has two dams, the 646 metre long, 12.2 metre high Millstone Embankment and Horwich Embankment which is 506 metres long and 18.6m high.
There were some kids about to have a sailing lesson.
The water was calm
but the safety boat was out and about just in case there were
any kids overboard.
