Coming Through!!

By DicksPics
Today's images were taken from and through the balustrades of the Magdalen Bridge, which spans the River Cherwell, Oxford in 2018 - they are presented in reverse order of taking.
I thought the lead may qualify for a 'Sort of' Silly Sunday image given that the punt only just missed the rowing boat to the right of the frame - that's skilful punting for you!SmileSmile

Many thanks for all votes, comments and User Awards(thank you PMs sent) for my 'Great Crested Grebe' upload. I was really chuffed to receive a GEA from Phil(Philpot), which made my day!SmileSmile

I hope you have had a good weekend.

Looks like quite a crowded waterway. I like the framing in V1 and it really pops on large,
That looks perfect for a Sunday jaunt.....as long as you’re the one sitting back relaxing. 😉

That's what comes of letting undergraduates loose...
Excellent capture Richard.

It looks like an obstacle course, with everybody having an eye on each other, and their next move!

There's nothing like a bit of chaos to trigger the camera shutter, Richard.
Certainly brought a smile to my face. Smile

Looks to be a bit of a traffic jam there, Richard! 😁 Two fine captures, well timed in the lead, my fave, but like how you've framed the version, too 👍
