Dancing on ice
Sometimes in the long, dark, dull winter months I crave colour as well as a bit of sunshine. All the more reason then to get out on a sunny afternoon and revisit a favourite local place... the Bingley Five Rise Locks. If not exactly a beauty spot (though not unattractive), at least there is always something interesting to see. The boats moored up for the winter are very colourful. This traditional narrowboat 'Alexandra' is a really beautiful craft. When the canal is icy the reflections are static and muted, a bit different from the usual dancing reflections you find in water.
