I took this photo at Cherington Lake. it's not far from where I live and it's a great place for walks in all four seasons and at any time of the day.

"The Avening stream, the only natural watercourse in the parish, runs westwards through the valley and opens into Cherington pond which was dug in the mid 18th century, presumably as part of a general improvement of the manor estate c. 1740. The lake afforded facilities for boating and fishing; in 1876 the activity of poachers was mentioned. " (British History Online)

Yesterday there was no wind and the lake was at its best with wonderful reflections and colours.

This is wonderful Jean-Noel. Such great reflection and that slight layer of mist gives it a touch of fairy tale.

A beautiful picture.
We used to have boating on our lake, but it was stopped a few years ago, due to EU Regs.
