Great shot of the lock -- we have lots of those here in Seattle!

Have a great day, Gerald!

I love sailing through the locks. Hubby and I did that on the Mississippi River a few years ago.

This is fascinating. I have recently become very interested in the workings of the locks of the Trent-Severn Canal that connects two of the Great Lakes. I don't remember seeing anything that looks quite like this, though. Or maybe I need to go back and look at my photos.

Very interesting composition! Until I started reading blogs, I had no idea there were so many canals in the UK.

I'm interested inlocks. The Erie Canal is not that far away. Good choice!

Hi Gerald, I am impressed! Locks are always a source of interest for me. Did you get under the bridge to take the photo?
