The Grantham Canal runs for about 28 miles between Nottingham and Grantham. It has been described as a spirit level meandering through the landscape. I have spent very many hours walking or cycling along it and it is a peaceful place, inhabited by many wild fowl and other fauna. It is currently closed to traffic, which for me is one of its attractions.
Over the years I have made many images: some in black and white and, since making acquaintance with the digital realm, in colour as well. These images are a selection from a wider portfolio and as I visit in the future this will expand.
The images of the water, which are almost abstract, reflect an impression of the canal that is not immediately apparent until photographed. For me they encapsulate the quiet magic of the place.
