A stroll along the canal with friends

I had a very nice walk today along the canal with a selection of cameras and most importantly, a friend whom I had not seen for far too long.

I had forgotten how much large format photography is a great excuse for a good walk and a long chat :)

I managed to capture some images too; despite it spitting with rain.

The swan was reasonably cooperative as it is nesting, but the ducks swam past too quickly to appear in the 1 second exposure.  Just behind the tree is a train track; as ever, I managed to miss the train.
