One of your best from the holiday, Ed, a great composition with the duck in the foreground, and the canalside path leading your eyes up and through the image.

I like the toll path lead in, and the wispy smoke indicating that there is life on board.

Just lovely - pity you didn't have any sky colour but I can imagine this for walkers in better weather.

I can imagine those two ducks telling stories of the goings on of those boats. A lovely image so well composed......Sandy

So cold even the ducks are not taking to the water: another good capture from your canal holiday, Ed.

A fine composition and very atmospheric - the drift of smoke from a leaning chimney - perfect. I think the best from this series so far. A
