The Rochdale Canal runs for 33 miles between Manchester and Sowerby Bridge in West Yorkshire, UK.
The Rochdale Canal Bill was passed in 1794 and construction began.
By 1799 the canal was open between Sowerby Bridge and Todmorden and from Manchester to Rochdale. The shorter summit level at 600 feet meant that many reservoirs were required to prevent the summit level drying up and to maintain an available supply of water for the 92 locks.
Footpaths run along the canal which is underway in Manchester downtown. It links to the Bridgewater canal and then to the Manchester ships canal.

a wonderful composition this, and you have managed to create a really stunning image out of a fairly everyday mundane scene. Well done! Excellent use of the light and reflected details to make the shot so effective. A superb observational image and presented imaginatively. Bravo!
Have a splendid weekend - Brian.

J'aime bien l'effet d'écrasement provoqué par le pont qui passe juste au dessus de la tête des gens. La lumière est belle de l'autre côté.

Le cadrage est interessant et efficace. Deux passants sont la, mais tout se deroule dans l'eau avec ces reflections. Et si tu ecrivais en francais, comme moi...Clodo.
