Dark Light along the Leeds Liverpool Canal

Dark Light

It’s been an awful day today! It’s been wet and windy and cold and generally the usual miserable British winter weather. We eventually decided to brave a walk along the Leeds Liverpool canal to give the dog (and us) some much needed fresh air.

The rain stayed away, but it was still blustery and cold. We pulled up our hoods against the wind and put our best feet forward. The light, for the most part was flat and dull behind the blanket of cloud, but just every now and then it would find a chink and remind us that it was still daylight! Looking up the canal towards the light was beautiful, but beyond the camera to capture completely, so I went for the silhouette!
