Winter Cambridge Punts

By now I’m sure everyone has opened all their presents, probably looked at a few of them, eaten more food than they can normally stomach and watched several reruns of the same TV series. The Christmas Tree and those decorations are beginning to look a little bit messy now and a small part of you is secretly looking forward to getting the house back to normal again. 

A friend of mine once called the Christmas period a form of Cabin Fever - boarded up inside with no means of escape and being force-fed copious amounts of food and drink - while shown reruns of Only Fools and Horses or The Queens Speech. 

It was a similar experience last year which led to this photo. After several days of working our way through Box set after Box set it was time to open the front door and get some fresh, unheated air.  Heading into Cambridge and down to the edge of the River, the cold morning air could be described as "fresh" at best and "bloody freezing" as a more accurate statement. The upside was that there wasn't another soul around. Everything was completely still. This weeks image shows the glass-like appearance of the Cam with a handful of punts moored up waiting for summer.
