I managed to find time for twenty minutes walking beside the Thames, at Moulsford, yesterday. It was beautiful, in an austere February way. Everything is still in that winter palette of neutral colours - greys, from blue pewter to silver lead, browns, from pale buff to greeny bronze, charcoal blacks that are not quite black and off-whites that are not quite white, with just a touch of mossy, green luminosity on the branches of the trees. Somehow it makes architectural shapes and patterns, especially in the reflections in the water, stand out very effectively. Here are a few pics so you can see what I'm talking about.
