Well OK, actually I'm still catching up with shots from late Nov / early Dec !

Still given the rather unseasonal nature of the weather recently (warm and sunny till last week) this is as Christmas like as it gets around here, and it is colourful :-)

Merry Christmas everyone!

John as usual fantastic composition and lovely use of a long shutter. Where was this one taken as I don't think it is somewhere I have been?

Happy Christmas to you!!

Thanks for the comments folks.

I hope you all had a great Christmas!

Mark: it's taken at my "usual" riverside spot at Grenofen bridge.

Cheers all,

Thanks John.... now not being that clever where is it in relation to Grenofen village?

John Maddock Dec 27, 2006 3:05 AM

Mark: from Plymouth, turn left at Genofen into a narrowish lane (only turning in the village just past the bus stop), then left again into a very narrow lane that takes you steeply downhill to the river. It's a dead end with plenty of parking at the end.

The photography is best if you go downsteam from there: either a short walk by the river the same side as you park, or else cross back over the bridge and take the signposted bridlepath. You can also get to the same location by parking at magpie corner (A386 below Horrabridge) and walking down the river: but there's a lot of engineering work going on because of the new cycle route they're putting in so I wouldn't recomend it at present (plus it's a long way to carry your camera gear)!

HTH, John.
