The Bridgewater Canal doesn't sound all that exciting but it has some wonderfully attractive spots along its length, especially here at Lymm, in Cheshire.
This pretty spot, which I photographed, abuts a house on the edge of the canal. If you click the link here there is a photograph of the cottage and a web cam which shows the nearby canal.
Many thanks for your interest.
I hope you liked the shot, Bev :-)

Love the splashes of color added by the plants & flowers & the arch frames the bg well allowing to see beyond & over the top part anyway. Sharpness is adequate. I like the opposing curves of the arch & the fg bricks in the raised pavement. Tfs!

I like the way you composed this shot, very stylish and attractive. It would be nice for any glossy magazine on gardening or landscape design:) My compliments.

What a fascinating note and what a lovely link to that website with all those great webcams from Lymm. Unfortunately, it's pitch dark just now but I must have another look in the morning.
And how interesting - am I correct in thinking that this was Sooty's house - or, at least, the house of Matthew Corbett? Or is that the house at the other side of the canal?
Whatever, this is a lovely and extremely well composed photograph, complying well with the rule of thirds but also very pleasing indeed. The curve of the cobblestones leads the way to the arched gateway and the slightly ajar gate invites us through. Gorgeous colours, perfect exposure and stunning detail and sharpness.

We need a female sensibility to compose such a beautiful image, smooth and colorful. The composition skillfully uses the curves of the sidewalk, and the arch above the door. It's very nice. The light, colors and sharpness are excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice evening

Le premier mot qui me vient à l'esprit est "charmant".
J'aime beaucoup cet aspect décoré avec soin (j'ai l'impression qu'il y a une main féminine, qui a participé à l'ensemble).
Un grand merci, également, pour le lien webcam, fort intéressant.
Très bonne soirée.

I agree with you, this is a very attractive view with many fine details. Even the pavement stones provide a beautiful pattern. The gate, and the arch around it, is well placed. I also enjoy the interesting link.
