Wayland's Smithy

Long Barrow

Wayland's Smithy (Long Barrow) by ginger tt Waylands Smithy at noon. I would like to dedicate this picture to my friend and contributor to this site, Wysefool who passed away recently after a short illness. He loved the Rudge and the Smithy in particular.

Nice... this and Moss's '06 shot probably sum up the place best for me. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Lovely photo, it always has a wow factor in autumn, it's a very striking long barrow, though 'restored' of course...

Edit; Apologies, did not read the words - very sad news about Wysefool...

Very, very sad indeed...

I always enjoyed Wysefool's input. He was one of the good guys.

My heart goes out to anyone who knew him.

Terribly saddened at the news of Wysefool's untimely death. I met him a couple of times: he was a real gentleman. Much love to his friends and family. J x Jane Posted by Jane

Sad news, and so difficult to know what to say. A haiku by Kobayashi Issa (written on the death of his daughter) springs to mind. So, for Wysefool and lost stoneheads everywhere...

The world of dew
Is a world of dew
And yet, and yet...

Shows how powerful the image is, didn't catch the dedication either.

Wysefool.... the name alone makes me chuckle whenever I come across his posts. Let alone the photo. Don't take yourself too seriously, have a laugh, yet know what you're talking about. Yeah, it fits what I've read, and is something for all of us to aspire to, methinks.
