Caen Hill Locks, Wiltshire

One of the longest continuous flights of locks in the country, Caen Hill on the Kennet & Avon canal is a daunting 29 locks. Enough to give even the hardiest and most experienced of boaters pause for thought and a magnet for Gongoozlers. This was a recent weekend visit with my Husband and our 2 dogs to the locks capturing both the industrial architecture and the wildlife that finds a home amongst it.

Much as our dogs are generally very patient companions on photography trips, there are times when they and wildlife photography just don’t mix. I had just managed to creep patiently around the back of the heron for a better angle, when one of the dogs opened their big mouth and it took flight. On the plus side, I was quite happy with the flight shots.
