Lazy River by if1

Lazy River

320 - Another shot from my Friday walk in the snow. Here, the River Ouse flows sedately past the south-west corner of Rawcliffe Ings on it's way towards York city centre.

I've taken a number of shots of this view at different times and seasons, but this is the first time the view has made it into my project. The scene here is very different to that in summer. This quiet tranquil winter scene is replaced by a busy scene with youngsters swimming in the river and sunbathing on the bank.

Personally I prefer the peace and tranquillity of the winter scene.

Nice shot. It reminds me of our river, the south branch of the South Platte River...it is shallow, meanders and seldom has much water.

I couldn't agree more. It's much more scenic!

Thank you Mal - this is quite a contrast to what it would have been like only a few weeks ago when we had floods, In fact my vantage point wouldn't have been accessible then!

Thank you bob - it may look quiet and peaceful now, but only a few weeks ago it was very high and fast flooding when York was on flood alert. My vantage point wouldn't have been accessible then.
