#PicOfTheWeek - Caen Hill Locks

This week's #picoftheweek comes from my local area. I am lucky enough to live in the beautiful county of Wiltshire which has many many local beauty spots. This image comes from the incredible Caen Hill Locks.

The Caen Hill Locks include a total of 29 locks within a two mile strectch of the Kennet & Avon Canal. The initial seven locks lead up to main rise which consists of sixteen locks and form a steep rise in a straight line up the hillside. These are then followed by a further six locks which take you into the town of Devizes.

Photographically here I wanted to emphasis the front lock and have lines leading you in to capture a sense of the locks disappearing into the distance. The cloudy sky adds a bit of a sense of drama which i enjoy.
