The Wheel and the Worm

By woolybill1
Worm in this sense = dragon - or monster - or snake. This only shows the tail!
The remains of a wooden mill-wheel stand in front of the iron engine-wheel.
Pathhead Mill, Blaydon, Tyne and Wear.
Yes, the land does slope down and to the right, while the wheel arrangement is seen from a considerable angle. But the mill in the background is vertical Smile

Thanks to Graham for his fabulous gong and to all who voted and commented yesterday,
Thanks for looking.

An interesting old mill. I notice Moira is missing in action this week.

Is that a relative of 'Nessie' coming through the grass?

The pov and the processing make this a very enjoyable image to view, Bill.

The worm (or wyrm, derived from the Norse 'ormr') has turned. In this case it's turned into a rather excellent
image. Very good Bill, so good that even Nessie wanted to get into the frame Smile.

Nicely composed, Bill. The process helps isolate the wheel and its attachments from the background.

A fine composition and capture, the processing suiting it well 😃👍
What's happened to Mrs W? I haven't seen any uploads from Moira the last couple of days, usually you both upload around the same time. I do hope she's OK 😲

Excellent capture and processing Bill and no need for the verticals explanation, we've locked the straightening police up for the day!

Do echo Trev and hope Moira is okay.

Great composition and the processing is spot on Bill.
