West Mills, on the Kennet & Avon Canal in Newbury.

After all the lovely weather we have had recently, it had to happen. Today was a day for cruising in the rain! As a boater, not something you do out of choice, but sometimes needs must.

Not that I was cruising myself. We were giving trips to school children. Rain or no rain, they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I went up above Newbury Town Lock to get this view.

A dull day, but a shot I am pleased with nonetheless. There was a surprising amount of light, so I was able to use a fast shutter speed and a reasonable aperture to get everything I wanted in focus.
