Sky Watch: Stalybridge Wharf

(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

This week's Sky Watch is a dramatic evening view of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal at Stalybridge Wharf.

This is just two miles from Ashton and makes an interesting contrast with the canal scene at Portland Basin shown earlier this week.

The canal to the west of Stalybridge, re-opened after having been filled in, does not have the character of Portland Basin, being lined now with modern industrial units, but the drama of the fiery clouds, reflected on the water, adds more than enough interest.

See Birds Eye View of this location.

Sky Watch is a regular weekly feature on this photo blog. It links with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies!
