All right I give in, how did you organize the truck train and barge to be in the same place at the same moment in time ?.


Comment by Robin Leigh on 25th May 2016 at 03:05
Of all the photos of this place, this is the first one I've seen with all three levels in active use. Nice..

Ahso you was on a boat on yesterday
Photo a Day


Comment by Fred Mason on 25th May 2016 at 07:56
Amazing, Dave.

Getting all those modes of transport in the same shot. Absolutely fantastic.


Comment by Dennis on 25th May 2016 at 08:00
Three levels of history, first came the canal then came the railway and finally the motorway.


Comment by Vb on 25th May 2016 at 08:23
That is brilliant - you must have been biding your time and 'lying in wake' for these events to 'happen'! What a pity there was no helicopter hovering! (and someone on a bicycle on the tow path!)


Comment by John Morris on 25th May 2016 at 09:17
Well timed Dave.


Comment by AB on 25th May 2016 at 09:50
Superb Dave, " What a Picture ? What a Photograph ?" This really deserves am award.


Comment by Johnny on 25th May 2016 at 11:44
Great composition Dave!
With the exception of a horse, this photo shows all forms of transport down the ages in one shot. Brill!
Too much to expect an aeroplane and hot-air balloon!

mums gone to iceland


Comment by Jonno on 25th May 2016 at 16:59
I've spent many hours walking and running on the towpath and many times i've seen 'Trains and Boats and Planes' as Burt Bacharach wrote.At that point at the same time but never taken a pic. Good photo Dave, next bridge towards Liverpool from yesterdays photo.

Clever and interesting photo. Love this one!


Comment by Johnny on 25th May 2016 at 18:57
I heard of a sad case!
A pensioner had died of hypothermia. She'd been shop-lifting in Iceland and stuffed a frozen chicken down he knickers! :O)


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 25th May 2016 at 20:51
Thanks folks... another lucky shot I guess :)


Comment by Alan H on 26th May 2016 at 14:46
Dave, the harder you try, the luckier you get is the reason your pics are always good. Well done.


Comment by Kas on 27th May 2016 at 18:28
Thanks Dave, a belter again.
