Shipley sundown


Another lovely photo taken by my daughter on her recent canal boat trip through Shipley and Saltaire.  I think she has a good eye for composition - perhaps not surprisingly, since she took a degree in the History of Art at university.  I'm sure that studying great paintings helps to develop one's appreciation of form, colour and composition.  I'd recommend any photographer to spend time browsing art galleries.  I can't think of much I'd rather do, given a few hours to spare - especially in company with J, who can teach me a thing or two about art.

Incidentally you can see a church tower in the picture and that is St Paul's Church, Shipley.

Scott has a beautiful picture too, on Sunset Sunday this week.

  1. It's so nice when our children get involved in taking photos for the blog. I'm sure your daughter's eye has been educated by all the art she's critiqued. Congratulations to her!

  4. Yup, another stunner by your daughter, Jenny. I don't have a degree in art, but we do share the passion of walking art galleries... so maybe one day we will do that together. ;-)

  6. That is gorgeous and you're right about the composition and her eye for it. I love the sweeping curve of the bow of the boat. She placed it perfectly.
