I haven't had a huge amount of time to upload anything to Flickr or comment on all my contact's great photos, so apologies for that. It's actually scary how quickly you can get behind on commenting and uploading (I've got roughly 50+ shots to upload, eeekk!).

 

Anway enough of the excuses....

 

This is a shot I took a number of months ago which I had never gotten around to doing anything with. Shot was taken on walk heading South from Loughborough along the Grand Union Canal.
