Canal boat

canal boat spring

On a Sunday afternoon walk along a canal towpath, I came across this old boat moored up, I was immediately struck how the boat seemed to be part of the spring landscape. The hawthorn behind the boat is heavy with blossom and the whole scene is alive.

The rusting boat, paint peeling,  the reflections in the water and the trees, all seem to combine to form an almost impressionist painting and making a strange but great picture.
