Sky Watch: Canal Reflections

This week's "Sky Watch" image shows the wintry sunset reflected in the canal in Mossley, four miles from Ashton.

The Huddersfield Narrow Canal is mostly frozen over but there is a slight flow of water around the lock (behind the camera) ensuring that the water in the foreground remains liquid! This makes it possible to enjoy the sunset being reflected on the ripples that move out from the water outlet.

The photo was taken during the recent snowy spell while I was enjoying a bracing wintry walk!

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!


  1. Great shot...love the reflections!

  2. What a lovely shot, and you wouldn't have had that beautiful reflection if the lock hadn't kept some of the water moving. Isn't it wonderful that we all have beautiful sunsets and sunrises, all around the world, if we're awake to see them?
