A local walk along Huddersfield Canal in the small village of Diggle, one Sunday this Summer. A good reflection day. This old mill possibly with chimney and tower looked to be in the process of disappearing for good under the demolition man's hammer as I took this. Herb

Don't bother to reply to all my picture visits today Herb ~ there are too many ~ this is an incredibly pleasing shot for me to view, the verticals of the old industrial building seem to add a better balance to the shot with nice diagonals too ~ then there is that perfect reflection Y*
