On Wednesday the three Musketeers ventured if you remember to the Malta car park to have our daily fix of photography. The light was a bit naff due to the lateness of the day, we left our Sue reading her Kindle in the car and off we trotted. Where is everyone? the place was deserted as you well see there is not a single sole walking into the pictures, MAGIC.
First stop was the Lock keepers hut. A quaint little place opposite the lock keepers house that Trev showed the other day.
Holding back the water, at the time we were there not much activity at the lock.
Sluice gates and Weir before the lock. Really eerie here, all you could hear was the sound of running water.
As I arrived as if on cue, two magnificent Swans came out of the water to greet me. These Swans were not at all timid , this chap wanted to peck the lens.
These two are in love. After a few shots these two pressed themselves together. In the shot above you can make out the mark on their white fronts were they touched.
The light was starting to fade. Looking up the River from the Malta Inn.
The Malta inn from across the river.
Looks very inviting and warm in there, but time to go home.
Thanks for looking.
nite nite, luv Mike XX
