Canal Bridge View, Stonehouse, The Cotswolds
View from the Canal Bridge, Stonehouse.
Another leisurely walk along the canal on a summers day, prompted me to take this photograph, framing the view of St Cyrs Church with the canal bridge. The eye is drawn to the scene beyond, the church is bathed in light , whilst the water, bricks and path are immersed in contrasting dark shadow.
The church sits serene, nestled in greenery with the cross visible in front. At the forefront of the picture, the tree and bridge walls are reflected in the water, the light catching them. I wanted to give a sense of the canal continuously flowing, so allowed the wool to tumble out of the frame.
