Just such a beautiful day :)

Stop and smell the roses, if you rush around everywhere it's not just the scenery you miss out on,


I got up at the crack of dawn today and went for a walk before work,

I just love the mornings here at this time of year, today was crisp, bright and fresh ... people were preparing boats for autumn crusies and holidays, the smell of cooked breakfasts and of fresh cut grass together with cool fresh air and lovely morning light pervaded my senses :)

I love the long shadows when the sun is not long up.....










When I finished work early I got home to my lock and watched a few boat people going through, then took an afternoon stroll down the tow path ... the pictures will never convey the sweet day I had today,

today was a good day ... a beautiful day :)

Awesome pics. One of my dream rides is to do England and Ireland on a motorcycle. Flying in and out of there is nice scenery but never got to do a walk around.

Pain heals, chicks dig scars, glory lasts forever.

I live in a very sleepy village right by the Shropshire Union Canal system ...

I love being here and love people watching and the daily activity of the boats,

we got lots of rain as well as sun so everything is always very lush and vibrant,

the boat people always paint their boats up really colourful too :)

Very nice pics,I sometimes do the same. I just get up early enough to enjoy the world before it wakes up and just enjoy. I live in the country the view probably isnt as nice as what you posted but it can be quite nice! Thanks for sharing the great pics!

Are you serious??

1. I do not own photoshop let alone know how to use it.

2. I have the originals sitting right in my camera still, that I could email anyone for scrutiny.

None of my pictures are ever tinkered with ... as an amateur photographer I have always tried to get the pictures naturally ... the only thing I occasionally use are Cokin filters for the sky if too bright and sometimes a polariser.
