The light at the end of the tunnel.

There is always a light at the end of the tunnel, but there might be a bend in the middle blocking the view.

Eventually you come out the other side....


This photo sprung to mind as soon as I saw this weeks Gallery prompt - Light.   I took it several years ago on my first narrowboat trip on the Grand Union canal, just as we came out of Blisworth tunnel.

The tunnel is 2813m long and after doing that in the dark the daylight is lovely to see as you emerge.

After digging out this photo it's now taking pride of place on my fridge to remind me that we'll always reach the light eventually!

  8. OMG. This photo reminded me of when my Dad took a heart attack years ago. He had a near death experience and this is exactly what he described.  Going through a tunnel and seeing a beautiful light at the end of it.  He wanted to emerge into the leafy flowery countryside but suddenly felt himself pulled right back.  He survived.  He is gone now but this picture just reminded me of him.  Thank you.
