Flight of Locks at Caen Hill, Devizes
This isn't all 16 of the steep flight of locks at Caen Hill on the Kennet and Avon Canal near Devizes, but it nevertheless provides an insight into the ambitious engineering of the period.
I photographed the scene a short while after dawn shooting into the rising sun, hence the flare. The packed perspective arises from using a 300mm lens on a crop-sensor camera, effectively a field of view of 450mm. Even shooting at f/8, the depth-of-field is pronounced. I like the freshness of the new day, the clean cool light, and the air of stillness in this picture.
Nikon D2Xs and Nikkor-H 300mm f/4.5 lens. ISO 800; 1/800th;f/8.
