On the afternoon of Sunday 4th December I went for a walk along the Thames from Boulters Lock towards Cookham. Being local, it is a walk I have done many times before, but on this afternoon the low winter sun was particularly effective at lighting up the opposite bank with a very pleasing, dramatic effect. The wintry sun brought out all the rich colours, better than I had seen before.
The different shades of colour on offer.
Golden colour really glistening in the sun.
The rich warmth of this foliage stands out from its surroundings.
What was particularly intriguing was how still the Thames was, at times replicating a calm lake, rather than a river.
A little bit of greenery amongst the leafless trees.
Charming Boathouse on the Cliveden estate.
Of course a few ripples make a pleasant change at times.
The colours on the water were the richest I have ever seen in this area.
Amazing to think that scenery as lovely as this is right on my doorstep, I was just very fortunate to be there when nature's lighting was so pleasing!
