Canal and narrowboat #photography
In the Black Country, we have no shortage of canals. This is the Walsall Canal at Ocker Hill, that runs through Tipton, Wednesbury, Darlaston and ends up at Walsall Art gallery. It’s an interesting picture, but a little messy because there are so many reflections on the water.
This is the same canal and my subject is that little bridge. There are fewer reflections, but they make the image interesting especially the reflection of the sky on the water.
This is All Saints church in Moxley. There isn’t much detail, but I like the silhouette against the blue sky. The Walsall canal goes under Moxley roundabout before turning towards Darlaston where it goes past George Rose Park.
I think a narrowboat on the canal makes for a much more interesting picture. This is at the factory locks on the Birmingham canal at Tipton. The narrowboat is just leaving one lock and is about to enter the top lock. The canals make good locations for landscape photography. You can also check out rivers and lakes which are often in areas of natural beauty.
I hope you have found today’s canal pictures interesting. I should be at Tipton again on Sunday to photograph the narrowboats at the Tipton canal and boat festival.
