The Canals go on for miles in the Greater Manchester area and there are hundreds of barge's, some are rotting and look like they need putting out of their misery and others like this one has an owner who seems to cherish it very much as he had recently just painted it his favourite colour red, which is the colour of his favourite football team Manchester Utd. I took took this photo in Stretford and If you follow the canal another half mile you will come to the ground Old Trafford in which the canal runs by the side of.
Thank you for your comments.

Nice colors and informative notes. I like the double diagonal formed by the path on the left and river on the right.

Great shot with a great DOF. The perspective and the contrasting red of the barge are marvellous. Nice work.
