Disappointing

Does this mean that the weeds have grown up because the canal is not used by boats anymore, I wonder?

Surely not..!

Interesting photo, Mick.

Sombre colours at this time of year but at least we still have some green in our pleasant land.

Good one.

Mother Nature doing her job! Still beautiful trees

Fred, surely your 'weeds' are leaves off the trees, the canal is definately used by boats.

It's Autumn, leaves have fallen. Look trees on the bank.

Comment by: Fred Mason on 16th December 2015 at 16:57

Ahh.. never thought of that, Jonno. Ta.

It is logical Fred.

Leaves in the canal are a nuisance to boats - they clog up the propellor, so it's like driving through a thick soup.

The leaves only float I would have thought!

Boring as per usual, Mick its always the same old shots, try something a bit more daring

Leaves slowly sink - so you can be trying to run your boat through several layers of them.

I like the sombre reds and browns in the leaves, but if it were my boat in the cut I would be worrying about the cooling water intake getting clogged up.
