Brownsover Visitor Moorings: Quiet evening scene.

Quiet evening scene.

Staying with the long exposure shots. Today’s photograph is of where we are currently moored. These are the Brownsover Visitor Moorings in Rugby.

It is fascinating to see the difference in inter-reaction between towns and their canals. Of course, in some places the canal goes through the centre of town. In others, like Rugby, it skirts around the edge.

Even so, the Brownsover Visitor Moorings whilst a couple of miles from the town centre are close to one of the out-of-town retail parks. So it is very handy to moor up and get supplies. It’s not necessarily so good for a longer stay to get to know the town though.

The canal here is on quite a bend, and mooring is allowed on both sides. The gap on the left-hand side is for mooring for the facilities (water tap, rubbish, etc). The rest of this side is 24 hours, whereas the other side you can stay on the Brownsover Visitor Moorings for up to 14 days.

The trouble with the other side is the bend, which makes it very difficult to moor up properly. Especially as the newly installed rings aren’t in the right places! Still, it gives a very peaceful scene this evening.

With the deep blue of dusk, along with the gentle overall lighting, this gives a very tranquil photograph. Being very early in the evening, the light trails and other lighting around the Brownsover Visitor Moorings do not take over the picture.
