Water splash?


Somewhat surprisingly, this image was taken very close to Saltaire, just across the river.  Close by but out of shot to the right is a housing estate.  Perhaps there is a small clue to its urban setting in the photo... do you see the blue rope hanging from the tree?  It seems that childen still enjoy hanging on to a rope and leaping a stream - no doubt many of them go home with wet clothes, but happy!

  1. It's good when they leave spots like this close to housing estates.

  3. A peaceful scene, thank you!
    In our part of the world blue ropes are for swinging into the river, not over it!

  4. So long as kids are going to be playing here with the blue rope, they are pretty safe. It is a shallow stream. The worst they will get is scraped up.

  5. A serene scene, but I can almost imagine the splashing and laughter of children there. ~Lili

  6. I am a displaced Yorkshire girl and this photo so reminded me of happy times with my grandparents and brother around Cottingley and Bingley.
    Thank you.H
