Recently went on a canal boat trip with my parents – who, as you do, have recently purchased such a vessel. Called Aragorn.
These a couple of the photos, taken on trip from Braunston in Northamptonshire to Leamington Spa in Warwickshire, via the Oxford and then the Grand Unions Canals.
A couple of the places we moored in were very much in the middle of the wilderness, and if it weren’t for the clouds and the full moon, I’d have had a get view of the Perseid meteor shower. As it was, I just went for this photo of the moon reflected in the still canal.
Passing through an urban area in a canal gives you a different perspective on a town, passing through both run-down industrial estates and gentrified neighbourhoods with water-side properties. This was an abandoned factory we passed in Leamington Spa.
I’ve got a full set of photos from the trip on Flickr.
