Welcome to the website for…

photos and images of canal scenes, narrowboats, boaters, events
and, as a result,
people enjoying their leisure time

Hi! I’m Geoff Caine,

This is my non-commercial, nothing for sale, no axe to grind and no spam to avoid hobby website.

NOTE: The site now has repetitive menu items under the Pages top level brought about by the WordPress.org software company who since November 2020 does not allow amendements to this using their Classic Editor that has been used for 10 years on this site. Correction…they will allow it to be used but only on payment of $298 pa – how very supportive of their dedicated users!!!

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.

In the past I have supplied many photos to Waterways World magazine.

One article of note “Pretty as a picture” refers to me and contains three of my photos with my narrative on how the composition of each was chosen.

A photo of mine was used on the front cover for the January 2012 issue of the magazine .
