42 is the answer to life, the universe and everything*, it is also the high score achieved by Mike Hey in this week’s challenge: “Canal Walk” with his high impact, monochrome image of the canal side shown below.
In second place was Chris Rogers with a score of 17 achieved with a picture of the Worsley Delph Sculpture in Salford depicting a “crane of a curious construction” used to lift the “starvationer” barges whose outlines are shown in the water – in case you were wondering.
Geoff Brierly’s image came third with a close up, in the soft evening light, of one of the swing beams of the recently restored lock 23E in the centre of Slaithwaite. (The canal was reopened in 2001)
36 members saw 22 photographs taken on the 14th. August as the club held its first outdoor meeting in over a year in Slaithwaite with a walk along the Huddersfield Narrow Canal.
Insights and image critiques were given by Sue Gibson, Brian Eastwood and James Gibson.
Well done! to the high scorers and thanks to all those who uploaded their images for review.
