City canal. A scene from another life.
My book entitled, Looe in Cornwall a photographic tour, is on sale now.
I'd be wary of living near water, now . . at one time, it was an ambition !

A lovely and peaceful place Michael. A little Venice somehow.

@Florence: pay bas ;)
A beautiful and idyllic scene with subtle light and gorgeous reflections. I too once dreamed of living on a house boat or similar, though the flood levels in so much our country strike fear into my heat. A terrific frame.

@DESPITE STRAIGHT LINES: Cheers Paul, me too. Living in a house barge fully fitted with jacuzzi etc... would be great.
Marvellous vista rich in history!

Beautiful, Mike. Is this place still there and the same? I love the peacefulness. Heaven would be a stroll along the walkway on the right. Thank you for this glimpse of peace first thing in the morning.

@CheekyMummy: Yep, still there, in fact it hasn't changed for more than a hundred years or so. I loved walking around there.
Great contrast and reflection. And the white frame really enhances the image. This composition is very beautiful.

A nice place to look at. Whether it is a god place to live in is another question.

Old school, timeless composition, and perfect exposure and processing,very nice work.

@Adrian: It's quite an old image, but remember converting it to B&W, some Gaussian Blur and tone adjustment and it really did look like an old picture.
This is a very beautiful and relaxing to look at. I'm just glad I don't live that close to so much water.
