Full steam ahead

Canal Boat - - Letters -

This photo was taken by my 13-year-old son on 16 July at Gar­grave top lock on the Leeds & Liver­pool. You will no­tice we only man­aged to se­cure the boat with one peg, such was our haste to get the shot. We man­aged to get it be­cause we had just passed pho­tog­ra­phers who warned us of the Fly­ing Scots­man’s im­mi­nent ar­rival. I rather cheek­ily won­dered whether it was a shot you could put in your mag­a­zine.

My son Rory was the only one to get this shot over the canal boat, the rest were con­cen­trat­ing on pho­tograph­ing it over a viaduct. The pho­tog­ra­phers sug­gested I send it to you.

SARAH GIBBS, via email Thanks for send­ing it in, Sarah, Rory did well and we’re de­lighted to share his skill with other read­ers – Ed.
