This afternoon I took DBoy5.11 to a party so ended up with 2hrs to kill before I had to collect him. As I needed to get some shopping in, I ended up at Sainsbury which is near Castle Marina and the canal. It was a cold, bright afternoon so quite good light for a few pictures.
I took colour and B/W but the latter worked better. Many of the barges have wood burning stoves so as well as an incendiary air there’s lots of smokiness.
I also got to try my new Tamron 70-300 lens. Very pleased with this purchase! I feel some social snooping coming on!

I live 2 minutes walk from here, is lovely wander to town. Really like the 2nd image – great timing to get him exhaling. I have only got a 18-55mm lens currently and was thinking of getting a longer zoom, what focal length were you on for that image?
Hi Matt. Thanks for the comment. I’m not sure of the focal length but its taken from about two thirds of the way back to the bridge. I like the way the smoke coming out of the guy echoes the smoke from the barges.
Loving the lens though, not a huge investment but its a big difference.
