Photographer's Note

The LOck Cottage along the Oxford Canal - The image was taken after the first early snow falls.. The early morning wintery sun was just coming rising. The thin layer of ise was forming on the canal. later to become alot thicker.. It was stunning how the sun was picking up the frost on the branchs on the tress. The cottage is estimated to have been built 220 years ago and belongs to the British waterways. The locks themselves are ingenious.. all hand built.. none of this fancy hydraulic systems they have today.. If you had to measure the carbon footprint of the canal system. it would be extremely low.. its all todo with gravity and our own human energy.. We can learn from this going into the new green era..
