Two narrow boats entering one of the locks at Whittle Springs on the Leeds to Liverpool canal. These can be hired with a crew to do all the navigating and cooking
you just sit back and relax and watch the beautiful landscape at 4mph.

I like this well timed, well composed shot. Where there is symmetry, we should celebrate that symmetry. Four miles per hour is generally the figure used for pedestrian speed. Accordingly, one could walk along at a fast pace and stay up with one of these narrow boats. I used to see them in Oxford whenever I walked down to the canals there.

love this! A brilliant observational image and one that is both compelling and beautifully artistic. It would make a wonderful poster to advertise a canal based holiday. Superb!
Enjoy your weekend - B.

Your point of view is well chosen to show whole of reflection of bridge. Also the dark blue boats highlight the picture.Very nice photo.

Nice seen, nice done, maybe deleting the sky above the bridge for a stronger view but that's only personal.
I like the photo:-))

These boats are perfectly framed with the bridge and its reflection. A very good and successful capture!

Oh, yes, this is very popular theme on the TE! Excellent contribution to this topic, I like so amazing reflection, attractive composition. Lancashire ... I've read about this place a lot of time. Good presentation!
Best regards from Russia!

Wonderful symmetrical reflections of the 2 boats nicely framed by the oval shaped reflection and the bridge span. Good sharped and well framed and composed. I like the realistic pastel colours too. Have a nice weekend!

I agree with many of the other remarks, and would like to add a wee point.....beyond the two longboats, in the background, the entrance to the previous lock and fencing are perfectly framed in the arch of the bridge. Touché
I can think of few ways to better spend 4mph on water.
Regards & thanks
