Today, I am posting a shot a little nearer home.
This is a view taken alongside the Leeds to Liverpool Canal. This particular view shows the fenced tow path leading to one of the locks at Barrowford.
This particular canal is the longest in Northern England, has 91 locks and reachest 487feet above sea level at its highest point.

It was a very blustery day and the clouds were skidding across the sky at speed!
Many thanks for stopping by.
I hope you found it interesting.
Please feel free to offer feedback on any aspect of the photograph. :-)

a very nice record of the past. I like the white fence leading the eye to the lock. And I also like the skidding clouds!
Thank you for sharing.

You're clever in creating an effective lead-in here!
Point of view is well chosen to get the best dynamics out of the scene...
Good details, and however small the red jacket is an eye-catcher!

If memory serves me correctly I have been on this canal for the experience of going through the five locks, (although I thought there were seven). I think it was the Shipley (or was it Saltaire?) to Bingley section. Does that make sense?
That is a very powerful lead-in line you have, especially the white fence and with your low POV. At the end of the "line" you have the red coat to catch the eye. The cloudy sky adds a lot to the overall image. Well done

I really like how you captured the low clouds and the white fence really adds volume to the photo!

Lovely shot of the canal in the country. Nice depth is seen as we look straight towards the lock. Excellent sharp details and the white fence makes a very effective frame for this beauty.

The white fence goes very well with the greens and blues, also nice sky.
