Boats on the Frozen Burton Canal by 

The harsh effects of winter are very apparent in this waterway photo. The Trent and Mersey Canal at Horninglow Basin, Burton on Trent, Staffordshire, England, had frozen over, trapping a line of moored narrowboats. Then, a layer of snow followed by a severe hoar-frost, completed this wintry scene.

    Hot summer’s day as I view this, but hoping to see and photograph some canal boats this following week and checking out some images on redbubble! Won’t see anything like this of course (I wish!) and think it is gorgeous!!!

  • Thank you for your very kind comment Beverley, I hope that you have a good week.
