Constable in Watford!!

By francisr  
For some reason when I walked past this scene I thought "that looks like something Constable would have painted." Not that I'm implying I have the same capability as one of Englands greatest painters of pulling social atmosphere from a landscape - but you know what I mean.

This was taken in Cassiobury Park in Watford. The water is the Grand Union Canal run-off and spreads and wanders by the side of the canal.

Even though it was a sunny day I still had to wind the ISO up to 400 to get a decent enough shutter speed. Although the use of a polariser, to cut through the glare on the water, did mean I lost a couple of stops.
