Stamford Park Boating Lake

The Boating Lake at Stamford Park, Ashton under Lyne.

In the first years of our married life we often came here and hired a rowing boat - 30 minutes was just about right for rowing three times round the island.

What an exquisite capture, Gerald! I love it! The fall colors, the water and ducks/swans and the boat! Perfect!

Have a great day!

Oh, this is very beautiful. The grays and the ducks(?) and the tracery of the ironwork. Lovely composition and very peaceful colours.

Such a serene scene! And certainly a romantic place to take your wife.

Beautiful shot, is it the same lake as that of Ackworth entry of this week's ABC?
