    Default Photographs of the River Test

    This thread is also a nightmare to reply to as the whole complex Google maps try to reload, and fail or struggle over the next 5 to 15 mins even with a fast connection.

    The 'health warning' is most definitely a current requirement.

    I set Control Panel to 5 posts instead of the 40 that I and most others use. I know Forum default is set at 10, but isn't that for users with dial-up speed connections?

    I was trying to be constructive 'cb' some of the bridge images could be improved on, better lighting, good growth in the month of May, flowering water vegetation, crystal clear water etc. the stuff of many a book.

    For me copyright would be a problem but I'm sure many authors and photographers would be proud to have their images on The Test Trout Atlas.
    Artists too, a nice river gallery link: Barry Fry Contemporary Artist - Gallery 1 - Rivers
    Ditto river Itchen, both rivers are steeped in history and deserve better.

    I found these fairly quickly. Autumn a good time. I'll see what I can come up with over the next couple of weeks.

    Any other takers on here?

    50 of those visits were probably mine... timed-out or 'crashed' over the next few mins.
    I'm on my sister's superfast connection this morning, belonging to the School of Ocean Science really, still took 30 secs to load fully.

    Not a bridge shot but a rare insight to the Stockbridge HQ of the Houghton club.




    Longstock Mill is part of the Houghton water. I'll try to get a colour version for this interesting, if unwieldy, thread.

    It is for me too. That's my image and I put a copyright notice on the page it came from (Google will have warned you on that).

    Since I love The Test, I give Fly Fishing Forums and you permission to use it while you are not making any money from it.

    I will even add the necessary attribution for you.

    I am not getting angry here - just quietly making a point about copyright and using images you find in a Google search.

    Thanks and hopefully I will bump in to you enjoying one of the best rivers in the world one day.

    See what sort of trouble you goaded me into 'cb'?


    Thank you very much for your retroactive permision. In my rush I really had thought that all the images I selected were from Goverment sites and okay for this Forum.

    I will edit the original post to credit you with ownership and insert the link with some other fine images including the Test 'snowscape'.

    Thank you again Jim - bandit127

    I knew it would be my fault!

    Yes, thank you very much Bandit127 and welcome to the forum.

    I have moved this thread to here to ease the bandwidth burden.

    Regards
