Lake and Boat House

Lake and Boat House. (Click on the photo for added detail.)

As I prepare to write up this week’s throwback post I notice that I have already shared all edited photos from last year’s visit to the Lake District. Which is a good thing, as it’s almost a year since that happened. This doesn’t mean, however, that I’m done with all photos from that trip. Last year we also spent a couple days in Guildford, meeting up with old friends. As it happened, one of those meets was at Winkworth arboretum, a favourite haunt of ours from when we lived in Surrey. It was not an arbitrary choice, as both friends we were meeting are also keen photographers. One’s also a botanist, but had not been to Winkworth before. So it was a very enjoyable visit. The weather cooperated and the flowers were in bloom, so this resulted in a ton of photos, many of which I still need to share.

Today’s photo is a classic view of Rowe’s Flash, an artificial lake within the arboretum grounds, also used for trout fishing by a local angling club. Since the sky was overcast I went for a tight composition of the abundant trees and the boat house. I’ll be sharing more photos from Winkworth in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out.
