Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

Today is the last of my shots of The Rochdale Canal - well, until I revisit it!

The shot captures some of the lovely narrowboats which sail along the canal and moor at the designated sites along its banks. There is always a peaceful and calm feeling about the area, probably due to the slow pace of travel, and this feeling of 'unhurriedness' permeates one's attitude.

I particularly wanted to capture this scene because I liked the way the sun was slicing through the leaf cover and illuminating small sections of the tow path.

The old building in the b/g is so typical of Hebden Bridge with its multi-stories and narrow windows. The town is built in a narrow valley so buildings have to go upward rather than outward.

Manty thanks for stopping by.
Please feel free to offer feedback on any aspect of the photograph.
Bev :-)
