Canal Study #5


The fifth of five studies of the Peak Forest Canal between Adamson's Mills and Captain Clarke's Bridge.

It should be obvious that the previous four studies were crops from this original, each focusing on a particular aspect of the scene.

Someone asked about traffic on the canal and in fact I've already posted a photograph taken further along the towpath that same day in December of a boat sailing towards me.

Someone else asked if people lived by the canal. I don't think so but the old shacks and caravans seen on the left bank are part of the Tameside Animal Shelter. Some dogs barked loudly at me as I passed but I didn't photograph them as I was wearing shoes not boots and was gingerly trying to avoid the muddy potholes on this section of the towpath.

I remember going all the way to the aqueduct over the Goyt when I was a lad. I must have rode my bike. Love this Canal!

I would enjoy a wander through here myself. I love the stillness of the water and the mirror it creates of the things above it.

I have wondered about the use those tow-paths today: Only for walking and strolling, or does it sometimes get used for what they where designed for, in other words: Are any boats towed by horses these days?

I enjoyed the Canal study series.

It does look well used for a tow path so I guess a lot of people use it to take walks if there are no canal boats being towed. I like this photo.

Thanks for all of the answers, Gerald. This is a brilliant idea, to take one photo and use the different aspects in such a way. I really like it.
