Good Morning,

The Royal Military Canal at Hythe, it has featured before and am sure will again. Here taken towards Folkestone. The ice still on the water despite +4 tempratures all day.Bright blue skies but a cold wind it is always a pleasure to walk along though with so many birds, and other walkers etc ......

Camera hand held and yes I urge large and for window users f11 and ctrl+ ..... for mac user large and cmd+

Many thanks to Sketcher for his UA on Sunset over Suburbia 2 that was a very pleasant surprise , so thank you Smile

Many thanks for the comment and votes on Etive Storm ,and indeed a few other images , all votes and constructive comment are gratefully received and truly appreciated. Colin and Mari

Aren't those clear blue winter skies something? The colour is reflected in the canal and the whole image is clear and bright. A pleasure to look at. Those kind of winter days make up for the dull grey boredom of today.

This is great Colin! I love its crispiness and the composition; the sloping top of the trees on the left of the canal and the curves of the branches on the right are all pointing towards the curved end of the water. Excellent photo!
