The spreading ripples

By Kaxxie
Morning everyone

If you walk to the very tip of Rivermead Island you’re rewarded with this stunning view. The area to the right is called Swan’s Rest Island and is only accessible via a private pedestrian bridge. The light and colours were ideal, then I spotted one lone duck lazily swimming into the frame. I was frantic to get the shot before he rippled away the perfect reflections! 😉
V 6&7 of a previous post, ‘Rain, rain, rain’ show how access to this area was cut off in February by the flooded River Thames.

Thank you all for your votes and comments on yesterday’s image and Bob for your UA. They are all greatly appreciated.

Take care everyone and enjoy your Friday.

Karen - always check reflections against the grid. They will drop down vertically, whatever angle they are viewed from!

The duck, in the otherwise blank foreground, creates a more balanced image. Nice colours and a lovely setting. No wonder it is a private bridge, to get you on to the island!

Hi Moira

Thanks for the tip. Would you believe I thought I’d checked it!!! However, My eye test is well overdue. 🤣🤣🤣

One of the houses on the left is that of Jackie's nephew Aaron. There are a couple of nice pubs down there too.

Excellent composition and the slight adjustment in the mod gives it the extra push.
