Here is the swing bridge which carries the road to Gawsworth over the Macclesfield Canal. We are currently enjoying a heatwave and so I was up early to walk down the canal before the heat of the day reached its height. This was just before 8am and the light at this time gives deep shadows and the foliage with the sun behind has a glow at its tips. I'm finding doing all the dots for the foliage in pictures like this quite therapeutic. It's very satisfying to see the rounded shapes of trees emerge as you build up the dots.
