Reach For The Sky

Today's Sky Watch image shows the view across Manchester Road in Mossley towards the steep slopes of Noonsun Hill.

Reaching for the sky in the foreground is a council workman who is taking a break from his normal job of replacing street light bulbs and is attaching Christmas lights to the lamp posts. They may only be humble Christmas lights in comparison with other towns but they add a touch of cheer and jollity.

If you click the image to see the larger version, you will just see on the far skyline, to the left of the lamp post, the tall shape of the Saddleworth war memorial at Pots and Pans Rocks.

See Google Street View of this location.

Sky Watch is a regular weekly feature on this photo blog. It links with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies!


  1. A lovely view of this sceneic part of the world! And love the touch of the cherry picker and man in the foreground busy adding to the beauty!

  2. Looks like a risky job, great shot :0)

  3. Beautiful shot. Happy sky watching.


  4. Interesting. Wonder if the gentleman is enjoying his ride? Happy SWF!

  5. Sorry to be so late viewing the post this week. Things have been hectic. Those poor fellows that have to go up in these buckets. I would be scared to death. This guy seems to be calm as can be just doing his job as usual. The landscape in the background is gorgeous, and the red doors add the perfect touch to the overall image. genie
