Oxford and Grand Union Canals – photos

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.

 There was an older gentleman watching us as we went under the bridge, and I  thought it would make quite a spooky picture to catch him in silhouette.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reflection of the Moon in the canal 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.
