Canal Stroll 2

Today’s photographs are going back three weeks again to my visit to Chalford in Gloucstershire. We walked along the remains of the Thames and Severn Canal.

The section which intrigued me most was beside a well built Cotswold stone wall, the trees created a tunnel and used the wall to ‘rest’ their branches.

The whole effect was bright sun dappling through a ceiling of leaves and grey black branches struggling to find the light, and damp from the mud and pools of the canal.

This was September 3rd  and high summer with its intense growth and bloom, fruit and danger. I’m hoping to go back soon and take more photographs as the leaves wither and shed.
