Thoughts of getting your longboat stuck sideways, a la Suez canal....

On the mono one looks at the lock, in the colour the green grass seems to dominate. So since the subject is the lock, I prefer the lead B&W.

Getting my locks cut off today, John but like the water here, it will soon rise again.

I prefer B/W, now there's a surprise! It looks a very narrow lock.

Free to roam!

The mono conversion is very good and I agree with James that it focuses attention on the lock.

I've always been fascinated by the ingenuity of locks!

Brings back memories of the Crinan Canal and leaning against these gates and never seeming to get to the end.

The standard seven feet for narrowboats, Kath... Maybe the brickwork and the wideangle exaggerate things a bit, visually.

It's very robust technology, Kate: worked out over many years, refined, and capable of absorbing a lot of degradation of parts of the system.

I have happy memories of a holiday during university on a 'camping' boat (iron bunk beds, lack of facilities) and being one of the two people operating the paddles and gates up a flight of locks. I might have to go slower these days: but it would be a fine way to get fit...

B&w for me. It looks a just make it fit. A tight squeeze.

A very dried-up canal! I have been trying to puzzle out, what the notice says or represents? I think mono for me, a more industrial colour!

Like them both. These locks are so narrow!
