We begin with something Nautical – the Manchester Ship Canal
(or as we now know it – Salford Quays)
The various waterways are connected by a series of footbridges for Navigation around the quayside.
Located in the Northwest of England the basins are still used by ships and boats at certain times of the year. Everything from Royal Navy and Merchant Navy vessels to Narrowboats which use the waterway as part of their navigation of the canal network
I like the narrowboats as they’re painted to the owners original design.
Salford Quays has its own narrowboat named after the painter LS Lowry, and it does cruises up and down the Canal network.
To start with, here’s a night time shot of the Holiday inn express on Salford’s Quayside, taken at Dusk by one of the Docks or as the people call them now basins 🙂
You could call this a 3D shot – as it was Dark as well !
The canal is pretty Deep, and joins up to the river irwell and mersey
This shot was taken during a family holiday to the Turkish Resort of Oludeniz. The beach was teaming with wildlife, maybe down to the hordes of fish that sat in the clear blue waters by the sand. The Ducks raised a smile as they waddled about in the sea.
