Lyndhurst


Water tap at Lyndhurst cemetery.

I wouldn't dream of drinking from it, I wonder who'd have the courage?

It was a dull, drizzly day, not a lot of natural light although it seems as if the white/grey clouds have been reflected in the shiny glazed finish of the water trough.

I apologise for not replying to comments or visiting anybody's sites yesterday. Our evening filled up rather unexpectedly and I didn't have time. I'll try to catch up today.

I like the textures and colors in the shot, but wouldn't be tempted to take a drink. wink

Hmm that looks like a right witches' brew. Do you think it contains eye of newt? In the US that sign would be there to thwart lawsuits.

I'm not volunteer smile but I like the whole picture and what it call up ... old time, remembrance and so on ...
I think there is a lot of potential in the pump mechanism on its own. Return when shadows are formed on it. richard
EJWilkins: I think I'm going to have to go back, it's a remarkable piece of machinery. I don't even know how it works!

Good comment on life today, warning signs everywhere. It looks like the pump is not connected either. Well seen.
Very nice composition Ellie. Looking at the pipe, the pump is out order. I like the colour tones.

I think they didn't need to write : not drinking water ... Just seeing the water, I wouldn't drink it !!! It has a nice green colour only for the eyes ...
Original and funny photo !!!

Nothing like stating the obvious. Who would even think of taking a sip out of that water? Nice one!

Exactly what Martin said: no lawsuits permitted! Good eye, Ellie.
Nice image - like the colours - and as you said Ellie who in their right mind would even contemplate drinking this water?!!!

it doesn't look too tempting but the colours are gorgeous
EJWilkins: I thought the colours were rather gorgeous too, so rich, which doesn't happen in the summer when everything gets bleached by the strong light. Some benefits from dull days, although not many!

What use is that darn water..not for drinking and even looks a bit dodgy for washing the car.
Neat image of it, though, Ellie.
Very nice textures here. I like this!

Great picture - bad water. I have been involved with cemetry stuff in my life and I know about underground mix of fluids - yech - no chance I would take a sip.

Proving you can get good colour pictures on a damp and dreary day. Love the notice! Like you I wouldn't want to drink it!
