Spring on the river by judithg

Spring on the river

A beautiful day today so I had some river shots in mind. This is a cropped version of a wider aspect with a family picnicking which I also liked but zooming in brought out the blossom which is about to burst forth. It's taken from a slightly odd angle underneath a bridge and I'd really like to move that metal railing to give a better view of the barge but I just can't budge it! I think this will feature again when the tree is in all its glory.
Same scene uncropped

I like the railing as it gives a leading line into the barge.I would like to see the full blossom as well as it will frame the shot really nice. We have the sun here as well but the rain is coming, they say by thursday. boo hoo

@cookie123 Oh yes Bernadette - I think we may get another nice day and then back to grey grey grey... I'm just wondering if I can stand on something and get the railing and the barge!!

Love this Judith, especially the pink tinge of the blossom, would be nice to see the scene again when the blossom and daffodils are in full bloom.
