Day #102Title: The Old Ship
Location: Heybridge Basin
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: On my way to stay with my parents near Colchester, I decided to take the back route and stopped off at Heybridge Basin for some late afternoon shots. It had rained heavily earlier in the day, but by 4:30pm the sun was out, there were fluffy white clouds, and a breeze so bracing it could blow you into the Canal! The Old Ship is the pub right at the end of the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation (which runs between Chelmsford and Maldon), where it meets the Blackwater Estuary. The lock gates are rarely open, but do provide an easy way for pedestrians to cross from one side to the other.
