RTF Competition 23rd June to July 6th 2024; - Canals - Vote for the Winners

All good things come to those who wait.

Sorry for the glitch in setting up the poll but it really was out of our hands. I do know that the fix was applied by the GADC Tefalheads at some ungodly hour of Monday morning so major kudos to them for fixing the problem so quickly.

Anyway, on to happier things. It seems as though metaphorical towels may have been thrown too early, the image that generated such feelings of defeat romped home - in fourth place. Our three for the podium and the champagne are:

In third place - Mark Fullarton - @markfull - an entry with plenty of numbers attached: 5 Rise Locks, near 3 Rise Locks, 250 years old and one of 7 Wonders of the Waterways. That besides, it’s a great image!

Second place was claimed by John Burns - @JockyB - with a picture that cunningly used a convenient pub to tell us what we were looking at - Foxton Locks. We suspect that a post flight pint may have passed John’s lips after taking such a cracking picture of the pub and the staircase of locks.

Unusally we return to the scene of the third placed picture - Five Rise Locks at Bingley. This time the pilot/photographer was a regular RTF competitor, John Blakeston - @john768 - well done to him!

Thank you all for your patience and thank you all for providing such great pictures. Congratulations to our winners, commiserations to those who didn’t make it onto the podium - this time. There is always the next RTF - Clocks - in which to enter a great picture!



Well done guys, all great photos. :clap::clap::clap:

You guessed correctly CC . Both me and the wifey had a refreshing pint after flying and walking all the way from the Rainbow Bridge right up to the Lock Keepers cottage at the top of the flights of locks. ( had to be done on such a lovely day) :+1::+1:
