I love being by or on the water, whether it be a coastal wilderness or the many miles of canals that meander across the UK. Many holidays are spent cruising the canal network enjoying the ever changing landscape and the diverse wildlife that call these waterways home.

The Long Climb Ahead

Canal Architecture

For me, there is something about canal architecture, and particularly locks, that lends itself to black and white photography.

Light and Reflections

The stillness of the canal waters produces some stunning reflections particularly in Autumn light. The low setting sun also lends itself to beautiful imagery over the water.
