Another fine set from your canal holiday, Ed: once again these images show what a neat fit there as when negotiating the locks. And I too am rather partial to the misty shots.

A superb set of documentary images Ed, each one with a story or tale to tell. My particular favourite being images number 2 and 6.

Regards and gave a great Easter Break mate.

2 & 6 for me as well, Ed, lovely perspective looking up the locks, but I like the misty mystique of the others as well.

Nice to have the clear blue and sunny sky but the atmosphere in the foggy V7 & V8 really impress.

A great set telling a story. I'm going for two extremes - V4 with the bright and sunny feel
and V8 with the mist.

A really good set of images, Ed!
A good mix of sun and mist - V3 and the flight of locks is my favourite today but, I do like V7 and V8 as well!
V3 reminds me of the Nine Locks at Brierley Hill in the West Mids, not far from where I live.
