Boat

We drove back from Exeter last evening - four and a half hours in the summer heat with a halt for dinner in "The Swan" at Whittington near Worcester. I still need to blog about my rambling on Dartmoor but this morning, having just got up,  I must get on and do things like have a shower and water the garden which is also crying out for rehydration. In the meantime, I forgot to include the following picture in my last post. It was taken close to Turf Lock where the Exeter Canal meets The River Exe. It was the best photograph I took on my hike from Starcross to Exeter. This composition would not have been half as effective if the sky had been blue and clear. I am rather proud of it:-

    1. Thank you Adrian. As you know, I take hundreds of pictures of the world around me and only occasionally do I achieve a picture that makes me nod my head and say, "Yeah, that is a good un!"

  2. I liked your swan picture so much that I included it on my blogpost today. I hope you don't mind. This one is "right good" too.

    1. Bob, I am honoured that you used my picture of Mama Swan and her babies. Or was it Daddy Swan? I am not sure.
