Great scenes often just "happen to be there". If you just happen to be there, at the right time, like I was for this one, you can always later pretend that you waited for weeks for the right conditions!

I love this place! Canals, locks (the Lapworth flight), bridges, narrow boats everywhere - yet an idylic rural spot.
This is where the Grand Union Canal passes very close to the Stratford upon Avon Canal. The two waterways are linked by a "cut" between the two, and there are tow paths to walk all around the lot.
This is Google Map's view:

I took this shot several years ago, but it has always been a favourite. I nearly missed it - as I was driving along the nearby coast road, and caught a glimpse out of the corner of my eye. Had to brake quickly, pull over and dash across to the water's edge, before the light changed!

Another appropriately snowy scene, actually take this time last year (2011) showing the Cromford Canal, frozen over, at it's terminus in Cromford - birthplace of the industrial revolution - in Derbyshire.
