    Pottering on the Pocklington Canal 2

    One more from my day wandering up and down the Pocklington Canal in Yorkshire, England on April 23rd, on a 40ft narrowboat. An earlier series was here.

    Pottering on the Pocklington Canal 2
    40D, 70-200 f4 L IS @ 70mm. ISO 100. 1/180@f11.

    The others in the earlier thread were also all taken with the 70-200. That knowledge hopefully helps some people who may be just starting out, to see that landscapes are not just all about a wide-angle lens. You'll find lots of opinion that says you need a wide angle lens to do landscape. No you don't. It offers additional options, but you can survive without one.

    Nice shot...I am assuming if it is a narrowboat, it is also a narrowcanal???

    It must've been a peaceful, quiet day? The water is so still, and it looks as if there is either mist or haze from the sun? Beautiful.

    Very. And gets narrower as the summer progresses with the encroachment of grass and weeds.

    Yes there was a haze caused by the heat of the sun (which is not meant to happen in the UK in April!). But it contributed to the peaceful, dreamy atmosphere and that is what I wanted to capture in this one and the others in the earlier series.
