A walk by the river
Looking back up towards the bridge.
Well, it started off as a WALK but ended up as a limp, as about 5 weeks ago I got out of bed in the middle of the night, and my left foot felt like the bones leading to the toes had twisted themselves over. Anyway, before I thought not to step, I did and something felt rather painful. I think it's a torn ligament and I have been careful, not walking too much but I HAVE been doing a lot of driving and that has not helped its cause at all. As I said, I started off walking but after half an hour was starting to limp and so turned and came slowly home. I did try to phone my OH to come and pick me up but no mobile signal in the bottom of the valley!
In the photo above I was trying to get the "arrow point"of the water as two currents merged.
One of the hollows gouged out by water over the millennia.
I loved the reflections here.
Now for several on the sports setting, where I was trying to capture the bubbles and spume.
Above and below: the same stretch of water but I didn't realize I had taken the 2nd one on a night-time setting. Rather like it actually. I love the jadey colour of the water in the top one too.
Looking upstream again, from my normal spot for photo taking. There were sticks piled up just below the road level from that flooding recently.
Finally, the last roses of summer times 2. Tess of the D'Urbervilles above and the lovely golden yellow rose by the gate.
