More from Sunday……
Canals and Locks
Canal side at Hatton Locks
I’ve never visited Hatton Locks but always wanted to. Nice shots.
Thanks. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
You weren’t driving?
No – too much like hard work!
“There is nothing- absolutely nothing- half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” said ratty to the mole – Wind in the Willows. One of my mother’s favourite quotes and these shots brought back memories of boating along the Rideau Canal here in Ontario and doing the ritual of the lock. I enjoyed them – thanks.
Thank you Lynne
The third photo is one I keep coming back to. The shallow depth of field with your long lens (or maybe a crop) makes a nice compression of the scene. The man on the left is an essential stop point between the blurred church and the strong forms of the lock gates. Might make an effective mono if you lightened the greens of the trees?
Thanks John. It was a long lens and I agree it might look good in mono, think I’ll give it a go at some point.
Most definately worth a visit. Thanks for sharing it. 🙂
Hi Adrian! I very much like the bottom picture here – excellent composition, and all receding to that far off church – it really pulls the eye in. Adrian
Thanks very much Adrian
