Cool beauty


Just on the edge of the busy little town centre of Hebden Bridge is a far more tranquil scene. It was a very cold day and the towpath was icy but I thought the muted, misty colours were very pleasing. This is the Rochdale Canal, at one time an important waterway for transporting raw goods and textiles to and from the cotton mills in the Calder valley.

  2. Cool beauty indeed and that little suggestion of red on the boats just sets it off.

  5. Your are right. It does look cold. And maybe foreboding . . .
