Rock'n'roll


I could spend all day watching the reflections on the canal, especially when there are a few narrowboats bringing some good colour.  I spotted this pattern alongside the moorings in Skipton.  The red blobs were moving mesmerisingly from right to left in a continuous stream, like some kind of lava lamp on speed.  I only had my small camera with me so it was tricky - with the shutter-lag - to catch the pattern.  This was the best of four or five efforts.  It said 'rock and roll' to me (though you'll have to imagine the rolling effect of the water).

  1. That's great. And so different from yesterday's pic, though I guess they were taken in a similar place and at a similar time. Have a good week!

  2. It looks like an abstract painting Jenny - had to smile about your "lava lamp on speed" comment.

  8. There's something so joyful about catching a pattern or a play of colours. This one came out like an abstract painting. (Catching up again.)
