There's a lot to like about this one Kath.
Light and dark areas contrast nicely, pull the eye to the subject.
Strong reflections and detail in the brickwork.
Plus a few people photo bombing the image.

Very peaceful yet with history and complexity. Shame it isn't on the wall in the Kremlin Office. Beautiful shot, process and presentation!

Thank you all for your great comments and for the awards Andy and Wallace. The viaduct is a hidden gem and curves the railway track over the Huddersfield Narrow Canal. Twenty two semi circular arches of which three are skewed as the viaduct runs over the road. Completed in 1849 - you just have to marvel at those Victorian engineers and Navigators!

The walkers just give that bit of scale and interest.

An image straight out of LOTR Kath, especially with names like Uppermill and Saddleworth. Did you see any hobbits there? Am out of awards so please have a 🏆 A reflective and peaceful image, lovely to see.

Dave 🙂

Thanks Dave and love the shiny cup! Yes lots of Hobbits in Saddleworth and maybe a Troll or two! It has become, 'the place to be' but is firmly rooted in hill farming and the woollen industry. As we say up here there are some new incomers that have, 'a penny on their sen' living there! Crossed by the canal and routes into West Yorkshire and some hotly contend it should belong to them!

Beautiful contrast in this image Kath, I can only endorse what's been said already.

Thanks Geoff and for your precious award too! If we all lived closer I'd stand you all a coffee at the cafe just through that arch!

Gorgeous capture, full of history I can almost see the horses pulling the barges. It looks so peaceful now and lush. Love that splash of light and reflections.

A super capture here, Kath, looks a great location for a stroll along the canalside 👍🏻 A super reflection too, and the two people walking are the icing on the cake 😃
It's a shame portrait format images don't enlarge larger than they do here on EPZ, (even though it then requires scrolling up & down) 'cos this should be viewed really large! 😬 However, this can be got around by pressing Ctrl and the + key, each press increasing the magnification by 25%. Pressing Ctrl and the zero key returns it to normal. Don't know if this works on a Mac but does in Windows! 😃😃

Superb composition. I agree with Trev, that it is well worth viewing very large and taking the hit on scrolling.
