River Reflections


These photos were taken on two separate occasions
just a couple of days apart.


Of course we were out with the hounds on both occasions.
Can you see the sundial on the far side of the river?


I liked the look of this truck
with it's reflection.
The river is so still.


Unlike here, where Jewel is doing her usual mad splashing in the water.


Here's a barge heading our way.


Jewel's keeping her eye on it.


The hounds aren't usually bothered about the barges,
except once they've passed,
and the bow wave comes
and splashes us if we don't move.
Either way, it often makes a lot of noise as it runs
along the banks.
Arthur gets excited when this happens.
Maybe he doesn't see what's happening so well.



I especially like to walk down by the river
when there's no wind.
That's when the reflections are at their best.

Lovely photos, Lynne. The river is so pretty. It must be very peaceful to walk along there with the hounds. :)

Beautiful reflections. There is something very enticing about this early spring landscape, which holds so much promise despite being so barren.;))
Have a lovely weekend,

Beautiful pictures!! I don't have rivers close by (living in the city), but when it rains, I like to take pictures of reflective ponds :o) It's challenging!...at least for yours truly :o)
Love Jewel all happy in the water! :o)
