Over the next couple of years or so I'll be hiking the Thames Path from the source of the River Thames near Kemble in Gloucestershire to its finish at the Thames Barrier a little to the east of central London. Its official length is 184 miles, so I'll be hiking at least 368 miles as I'll hike it fully in both directions. And as I sometimes go off piste it will end up well over 400 miles. See the very first post for further information.

Day 11 - 4th November 2014 - Near Abingdon to Culham
Today's hike started in the chilly autumn morning river mist. It cleared by late morning leaving me to anticipate the (forecast) bright afternoon. Rain arrived less than an hour after the mist cleared defying the confident sunny forecast! So a diversion in to the George & Dragon in Sutton Courtney for lunch was timely. I came across several interesting image making possibilities and was pleased to find when I got the files onto my computer at home that I could make something of a few of them. One or two were where the scene itself did all of the work leaving me with not much to do after having pressed the shutter. A few others required the application of my own creative interpretation - these are always far more more personally satisfying. I took several pictures in the mist but none of them survived critical assessment in Lightroom.
