Welcome to the web site for…

photos and images of canal scenes, narrowboats, boaters, other users and events plus a blog.

Hi! I’m Geoff Caine,

This is a non-commercial website, there’s nothing for sale and no spam.

I created it in June 2006 to help boaters to plan their cruising routes.

I maintain it as a hobby to share with others.

I’m a canal enthusiast. I live in central Birmingham overlooking the BCN. So, I have a lot of contact with boaters and other enthusiasts.

When the sun shines I get out and about on the towpaths with my cameras – nothing betters the relaxed atmosphere there and meeting friendly people.

I believe that canals are to do with people as well as mature, historic scenery. So, in my photos, I always try to include landscapes, boats and people and I look for an implied story within the scene.

Waterways World magazine, to whom I have supplied many photos in the past at no cost, recently asked me to provide photos and explanatory text for an article entitled “Pretty as a picture” which was published, along with submissions from two other photographers, in their November 2015 issue. The text explains what techniques of composition, lighting, etc, we use to create our photos.

The site is updated regularly. So, if you like it why not subscribe to automatic email? You’ll be notified of the Latest Additions (see below). Your email address will not be given to others nor will any spam be sent. You can cancel any time.

This is me Geoff CaineI hope to meet you on the cut some time – I’m recognizable also by carrying a large camera or two.  I’d love to hear tales of your cruising. If you like you and/or your boat could feature in the Met on the Cut articles – it’s just a bit of fun and great to tell your friends to view.

Best Wishes,
