Messing About On The River

A more relaxing view of the River Cam than last week and a more idilic view of Cambridge. This was image was taken the same day as last weeks (in fact only a few minutes later) and shows the river returned to much calmer state. There's not a great deal more to say about this one except as I was standing on the bridge watching this unfold I found myself feeling extremely envious that it was me relaxing on one of the punts with a cool glass of something!

I am still going through the photos from that mornings shoot (a did take a far few!) and I'm sure a few more will appear in the future. I love 'people watching" and I spotted everything from a children's birthday party to several hen nights floating past as I watched. Something to save for the future.

I decided to include two versions of the image this week. Both were processed in Lightroom. The first is using an HDR filter and then other an "Instamatic" vintage style effect. 

As I sit here writing this, with the skies grey and the rain pounding on the windows, it seems like a long time ago that I took these photos! Come back summertime!
