Union Wharf III

By Glostopcat  
A view of some of the narrowboats moored at Union Wharf in Market Harborough on the Leicester Arm of the Grand Union Canal. This one was taken on the last morning of my canalboat holiday after a hard frost overnight. All the blue boats belong to the canalboat company and are hired out during the year.

The number of narrowboats shows the popularity of this type of holiday.
I expect there's great feeling of getting away from it all.
Did you all leave mobiles and computers at home?

The point of view makes for a wonderfully inventive and regimented diagonal composition Ed.
