Ashton-under-Lyne, Ashton Canal

Another happy fisherman down on Ashton Canal.

A Heron, probably.


  1. And now the owning up bit.
    Annie took this photo after I mockingly told her there was no change of getting a decent wildlife shot with the Kodak V705 that I always use. I have to say she did well, even though the picture you see here has spent a good while being re-arranged, sharpened and enhanced using half the dirty tricks in the Photoshop arsenal of deception. The eagle eyed may spot that there is no reflection from the canal wall!

  2. definitely a heron - i've seen one or two on the canal. I'm told they nest somewhere on the land behind Naysmith Avenue in Denton.

  3. Then I don't need to ask what that tower is!

    I'm a big fan of Photoshop
    I used it extensively here.

  4. I don't know what the tower is either. I didn't add it.
    Can't tell that your pic is Photoshopped.

  5. Amazing Martin. How could you have recognised the tower from an upside down wobbly reflection!

  6. Because I know that stretch of canal very well!
