Hatton Locks

The advantages of being a Flickr member! Another local photographer I "met" on the Birmingham Group lives in Leamington Spa and recently posted some fine shots taken on the "Stairway to Heaven" a.k.a. Hatton flight of locks on the Grand Union Canal.

Having never been there (but having driven past many times) we decided to take a Sunday morning walk up the canal tow path and, of course, take a few photos. The ones you will see here today were taken with the Fuji S7000 digital (instant gratification). The ones that will appear later will have been taken with the Nikon F5 (300mm f4 on the front end, Fuji Astia at the back), processed, scanned and finally uploaded. Don't hold your breath, it could take a week or two, particularly as my scanner is out on loan.

Anyway, here is a heavily photoshopped image of canal locks, just for the fun of it.
