Bascote Bridge, Grand Union Canal

 Ice in the water and icicles on the lock gates.

It is lovely in the sunshine, if you can get out of the wind, and there are still snow flurries occasionally.

The canal is still very quiet, one or two boats passing each day.  Nothing seems to be going our way.

 This old chimney stands out by the canal before the leaves come on the trees.  The only remains of an industrial site, now left to Mother Nature.

This is one of my earliest commission cards.  You can tell because it is quite plain.  I would probably be a bit more ambitious nowadays.

I matted the photo of this much loved, sick and soon to die, dog onto white card which I edged with deckle scissors before matting again onto lilac card.  The panel was then stuck onto a white card blank.
