Nice photo Thomas, great sky, but with it being the canal it will get the Canadian bacon sizzling.

Exotic photo Thomas, looks like this was taken from the Iron Bridge, with the you know what bridge a little ways on the left.

This is a wonderful picture. It would be worthy of a very high place in any photographic competition in the world. Many congratulations to the photographer!

When evening shadows turn to blue,
it means the day is no longer new....

Nice, subdued grass verges, as well, Thomas.

Canal comatose!
Dusk coming quickly on,
All still but for Eels and Owls,
A russet crack of fox on the far horizon.
Silence but for the evening rise
Of lapping halos
Not a stir.
Soon the light will fade
And open the lid of a jewelry box.

Above and below ,
reflections and more ,
water turned glass ,
blue chilled and fading ,
dying lights parading ,
a mystical shading
that feints to be more.

What box is this treasure ,
laid bare to measure
a god given grace ,
to cherish and place
in a moment of space
we hold for just now ..
