Shadow Shot Sunday 191 - Tetbury, Cotswolds

This architectural detail comes from a doorway in the pretty Cotswolds town of Tetbury which is very near to Kemble, the source of the Thames where I started my hike along the river trail a few weeks ago...... 

The town is characterised by buildings in fine honey-coloured Cotswold stone - a pretty high street, marketplace, church spire, village green and ivy-clad cottages with steep cobbled steps - quintessential rural England!!

Weekend Reflections 33 - Thames Path, Oxford

Another sequence of shots taken on my hike along the Thames Path - perfect if you want some peace and quiet in the tranquil English countryside - these were taken just coming into Oxford and as you can see you can still feel away from it all down by the river....For more reflection shots, click HERE for WEEKEND REFLECTIONS - enjoy!

Weekend Reflections 32 - The Thames Path

The Thames Path is a 184 mile national hiking trail which traces the journey of the Thames from the source to the sea - the only walking path which actually follows the full course of any river. Last week my sister and I walked the first 54 miles from the source at Kemble to Oxford staying at some of the most delightful riverside inns, and here are a few reflection shots showing different moods of the Thames from that first section. I am planning to complete the rest of the path when I can.....For more reflection shots visit WEEKEND REFLECTIONS - Enjoy!
