Nice one Ron ,does look like a painting very soft feel to the photo.

JohnB. It is the Leeds and Liverpool canal at Haigh. The Lancaster pound goes from top lock Wigan, to bottom lock Wheelton,and was originally part of the Lancaster canal, hence the Lancaster pound.

Bet you didn't get the couples permission for their photograph. Didn't want to pay them commission. I know.
