Had a wonderful walk on Ilkley Moor yesterday taking lots of pictures in the freezing cold..
Got home and happily went to look at my piccies...
Disaster....Camera had been in rucksack and the anti vibration button had accidently been knocked...
Not a sharp image out of the lot.
Wont have that happen again too quickly...Wink
oh well off to the nut shop

Superb colour and light.. quite unique of yours...excellent detail.
We went Ilkley after I left your market.. but not Moor, only street.. wondered a bit....sudden decision, only learnt that it was a sunny day that day, so we were off.. Smile. I'll try to visit you again when it a sunny day again...Grin

Of course you know it...

All along the backwater,
Through the rushes tall,
Ducks are a-dabbling,
Up tails all!

Ducks' tails, drakes' tails,
Yellow feet a-quiver,
Yellow bills all out of sight
Busy in the river!

Slushy green undergrowth
Where the roach swim--
Here we keep our larder,
Cool and full and dim.

Everyone for what he likes!
WE like to be
Heads down, tails up,
Dabbling free!

High in the blue above
Swifts whirl and call--
WE are down a-dabbling
Up tails all!
