High Water Moorings
Title: High Water Moorings
Location: Paper Mill Lock, Little Baddow
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: The canal towpath was pretty squelchy today and the water was very high. The Chelmer & Blackwater navigation is a canalised river but it still suffers from flooding regularly after heavy rain. The lock at Paper Mill was overrunning both gates and the weirs were in full furious flow. This calm little scene, just upstream belies the raging torrents further down.

Title: Withered
Location: Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: After all the rain of recent months, it’s been quite dry for a while and it hasn’t taken long for the mud along the canal towpath to crack up, looking like it’s never seen a drop of water.
