On a visit to Chichester Canal, my attention was drawn to the abstract nature of the buildings reflected in the water. Whilst shooting these, some ducks swam into my composition and came out as silhouettes, which I thought were a bonus. I offer you 3 versions of the ducks, 2 other reflections abstracts and finally the overall scene for context.
I expected to see several narrowboats here, but there is only one trip boat, because Chichester Ship Canal is now only a couple of miles long and not connected to anything. It was opened in 1822 to link with other rivers to form a route between London and Portsmouth. The last commercial cargo was carried in 1906 and Chichester Council abandoned it in 1928.
