I took this image of “Dunslavin” as I was cruising the canal system in Weeden Bec near Northampton in Oct 2011.
This was a fantastic experience that everyone should do at least once in there lives.

Taken with a Lumix G2 using a 35 – 200mm zoom Four Thirds Lens with
just a touch of HDR.

I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.

I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.

    Oh what a life Larry!…beautiful capture!!…I could do this for a while.

  • If you are using the tiller and guiding it, I can tell you from experience it is very strenuous and takes a lot of concentration.
    Not much time to put your feet up unless you pull over somewhere.
    And when you’re in a Loch being raised or lowered, there is only inches between your narrowboat and the other person’s… But all that’s half the fun.
