Stroudwater Canal – A wildlife study through the seasons
Photographs by Trevor Blundell
An exhibition of wildlife photographs is on show at The Wallbridge Lock Visitor Centre. The display can be seen between 13th January and 30th March.
Local photographer Trevor Blundell offers his work for sale. Many of his unique studies are also available as greetings cards.
Stroudwater's Golden Mile
The exhibition focuses on a golden mile of The Stroudwater Canal between Ebley Mill and Ryeford Bridge, within 2 miles of the Cotswold Canals Trust Visitor Centre at Wallbridge Lock.
The exhibition includes photographs of birds, insects and animals co-existing in a beautiful but changing environment through winter, spring, summer and autumn.
The Ebley Swans
Also included are a series of photographs documenting the life cycle of the Ebley Swans (and cygnets) and their attendance at the Queen’s Golden Jubilee celebrations and Trailboat Festival in the summer of 2012.
When asked to describe his collection Trevor replied… "I intend the displays to be educational, enigmatic, thought provoking and interactive for all ages.
"I consider that the exhibition highlights in a unique way how people and wildlife interact and maximises what The Stroudwater Canal has to offer."
Gallery manager Jill Field comments…
"The pictures, together with Trevor's interesting captions, make a really enjoyable tour of the gallery.
"It is worth taking some time as there is so much to see in the pictures
"Trevor has reproduced some of the studies as very good value greetings cards."
