This is Bridge 54 on the Worcester and Birmingham Canal, taken from the huge embankment that holds back Tardebigge Reservoir. The bridges (and locks) are numbered northwards from Worcester to Birmingham. The lock by the bridge is Lock 50.

Just after sunrise on a Sunday morning, and all is quiet. Even the fisherman who had stayed overnight in their green tents had not stirred when I arrived at the reservoir. The light was well worth getting out of bed for. Wonderful.

Photography stuff: 18-70mm lens at 18mm, 1/20 sec at f/10, tripod, remote release.
