A walk around Manchester, UK, with a camera #6

Following on from yesterday’s post, we are still in Castlefields, Manchester, close to the Museum of Science and Industry. From where I’d been photographing the canal overflow, I walked over to an area below the meeting of bridges seen above and in today’s featured photo.

From here, we are looking at a large basin of the Bridgewater Canal, from which several offshoots lead to other parts of the city – and there are links to the Manchester Ship Canal and the River Irwell. The Bridgewater Canal itself continues, but links also to the Rochdale Canal.

I was unsure about the best direction to go in, but I re-crossed Merchants Bridge – which I showed you yesterday – to the Bridgewater Canal Towpath which led me to the bridge above and its reflections.

From the towpath, there are some interesting, and sometimes picturesque, offshoots such as the one above.

As I returned along the towpath, following a high-level railway line, there were canal-boats moored, more bridges and more lovely reflections.

At the point above on the towpath, you can see Merchants bridge ahead, beyond the canal-boats.

By now I was on my way back to Deansgate, where we’ll resume our walk tomorrow, but I’ll leave you with this final photo from Castlefields with more lovely arched reflections.

As I mentioned at the start of today’s post, the Featured Photo today is of the point where there are meetings of both waterways and railways.

EXIF Data were: I used my Fujifilm X-T4, 26 MP, cropped-sensor, mirrorless camera paired with a Fujinon XF 16-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 lens,. Shutter speed was 1/100 secs @ f/5.6 and 16.6 mm. ISO was 160.
