Floating on a sea of flowers.

This is the first time Ive seen Kittywake on the canal this year.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 2nd July 2015 at 08:13
That's a beauty!


Comment by Maureen on 2nd July 2015 at 13:54
That's a lovely shot Jeff..and just look at those beautiful daises.


Comment by Mick on 2nd July 2015 at 13:55
Dave (Oy) have you not noticed that Nasty Black Bitumen covered pipeline.


Comment by Derek Platt on 2nd July 2015 at 16:42
Wonderful photo, in spite of the dirty black bitumen pipe and support structure. I just noticed the passengers. I guess this is a starter cruise. by the way are they going to Liverpool or Leeds.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 2nd July 2015 at 18:31
Derek; I`m somewhat surprised that you ask which way Kittywake is going having worked at Walmsleys.
Kittywake`s stern is on left hence going towards Liverpool.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 2nd July 2015 at 19:45
Yes Mick - the black bitumen covered pipeline is industrial - as is Wigan. Compositionally it gives the boat a target - I like it. :)


Comment by David on 2nd July 2015 at 19:46
Excellent composition Jeff.


Comment by Ivor Biggun on 2nd July 2015 at 21:37
Now what rhymes with Mick ?


Comment by Fred Mason on 2nd July 2015 at 21:44
Fantastic photo, Jeff.

I remember that pipe crossing the canal in the fifties as a kid. I also played football with my mates on the playing fields where the stadium is now. If my memory serves me right there was a sewage plant to the left of the photo, in the fields.

Great pic.


Comment by Derek Platt on 2nd July 2015 at 21:57
Thanks Ernest, never really been interested in the canal. Even today I never know which way to go if I come across the canal.


Comment by Mick on 2nd July 2015 at 22:35
Dave Oy if the boat driver just sticks to the middle of the canal he wouldnt need a target.
