What a beautiful, serene scene. what season was this? It's a nice change to look at this instead of looking out of my window at the wintery vista we currently have!


Comment by Scholes Malc on 22nd November 2014 at 07:29
brilliant shot - bring on summer!


Comment by Aubrey on 22nd November 2014 at 07:43
You've done it again David, another very good shot, an interesting subject, well composed and clear.


Comment by Helen on 22nd November 2014 at 08:58
What a peaceful scene, I love canals & narrowboats.

that's a lovely picture of Autumn


Comment by maggie on 22nd November 2014 at 09:55
What can I say, except thank you. You can have such a wonderful time on a narrowboat. That is what we did, until w had to give it up. Still, very happy memories.

Beautiful scene, well done David.


Comment by Maureen on 22nd November 2014 at 11:22
David,that's a beautiful scene,it reminds me of a Constable painting.


Comment by Neil Cain on 22nd November 2014 at 11:27
Love the reflections, really pleasing shot.


Comment by ann21 on 22nd November 2014 at 11:47
Lovely photo David. Was it taken recently because we have had some good weather recently. I know it is changing now


Comment by Giovanni on 22nd November 2014 at 11:53
Did Constable or Turner ever paint in Lancashire , does anyone know?


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 22nd November 2014 at 14:07
Don`t know Giovanni,but I bet they woiudnt be as good as David`s picture !


Comment by Maureen on 22nd November 2014 at 14:17
Giovanni,I'm sure Turner painted in Yorkshire..but not sure about Constable though.. wouldn't have thought so.


Comment by Rubyshoes. on 22nd November 2014 at 15:48
A really lovely photo.


Comment by David on 22nd November 2014 at 17:34
The photo was taken on the 16th of October 2014. Thanks for all of your comments.


Comment by Giovanni on 22nd November 2014 at 20:03
You're right Maureen!
I can recall a painting of the Yorks coast by Turner.
Pity Constable and Turner didn't visit our lovely county...and they'd have enjoyed the meat pies!

Giovanni/Maureen - an excerpt from
http://www.turnersociety.org.uk/Turner_biography.pdf
----
In 1816 Turner made an extensive tour of the north of England to gather subjects
for watercolours intended for engraving in the 'History of Richmondshire' scheme,
a survey of the area around Richmond in Yorkshire and Lonsdale in Lancashire.
Originally Turner was to have made 120 watercolours for the 'Richmondshire'
project, and to have been paid the large sum of 3000 guineas for those drawings,
but unfortunately the venture petered out owing to lack of public enthusiasm, and
Turner made only some 21 of the designs.
------
Quite often artists would tour and make sketches of scenes/subjects then work on paintings in their home studios later.
