Trent and Mersey Canal

Boat at Trent and Mersey Canal

The picture above was taken in January last year. It was a beautiful sunny day, hubby and I went for a walk to the canal and got to enjoy the lovely weather.

Yesterday was also surprisingly sunny, after January being mostly wet and gray. February is looking a lot better! Hubby and I went to Knutsford’s Artisan Market. It is held on the first Sunday of every month and a number of local producers bring specialist products like wrought iron made products, cakes, sausages, bread, jewelry, radishes, etc. We had a good time and got to try lots of yummy food.

Going back to next year, I took the picture above on Day 57 while walking by the Trent and Mersey Canal and didn’t get to share it with you.

Day 195 – Sunday Evening Walk

Our early evening walks have changed a little, daylight is lingering for longer which is fantastic. I don’t really like walking in the dark, you can’t see what you stepping on or what creepy crawlers are about. Sunday evening we went for a short walk around the canal, I was hoping to see some wildlife but we didn’t have much luck. We saw lots of canal boats though.

Day 134 – When the Night Falls

I had a very busy day yesterday. I have joined a local gym and I am hoping to go at least 4 or 5 days a week. Yesterday was my third day going and I am loving it. I have joined with my friend Sarah and I hope we can keep each other motivated.

Last night, I went to the Mersey and Trent Canal to take some pictures. It was quite dark by the time I got there which was perfect as I had not taken pictures of the canal at night. I like both of the pictures below and couldn’t decide on one so here it goes Day 134.

Day 95 – Town Bridge

Tonight I went to town to take some pictures. Once there I headed straight towards the Town Bridge. I have driven across it for a few years now and until tonight I have never stopped to look at it properly. The bridge was built in 1899 and it was one of the first electric-powered swing bridges in Great Britain. I have never seen it in action but I really would love to!

Happy Weekend to everyone!

Day 79 – A Different Angle

We went to Winnington Village on ‘Day 45’ to take pictures of Wallerscote Island.

Today I tried to make it home just in time for Sunset but did not arrive home until 6:00pm. It was a bit late for a sunset but as the skies still had a bit light on them, we decided to visit Marbury Park. We walked towards one of the canals in which you get to see Wallerscote Island from a different angle. It was very hard to choose just one picture so tonight I am sharing three instead. I hope to submit this picture for a local competition, so I would appreciate it if you could tell me which one is your favourite. If I win I get to choose the subject for the next competition!

Here it goes Wallerscote Island from a different angle.

Day 60 – Over the Bridge

I am very much looking forward to tomorrow! I will be going to a photography lesson in Manchester. It is a two-day course and I hope to learn a bit more about portraiture.

We had a bit of snow during the day and more is predicted for the next couple of days. I will defo be layering tomorrow in order to keep warm.

Tonight I went for a walk to the canal close to our house. I took some pictures standing over a small bridge, looking down to the canal.

Hope you all have an amazing weekend!
