(Contains 55 photos)I took a trip by Salters Steamers from Oxford to Abingdon and back. The light was excellent to begin with, although it became cloudier later, which created some particularly dramatic skies.
The Salters Oxford - Abingdon round trip takes about 4 hours; it runs twice daily so there is the option to stay for a while in Abingdon, returning to Oxford by the afternoon boat.
(Contains 50 photos)A series of views from a round trip that I made on a Salters Steamer between Wallingford and Abingdon.
The River Thames over this section is very quiet but attractive. The main features along this section are the views of the Wittenham Clumps, Clifton Hampden, and the River front at Abingdon.
The river here has a quiet beauty that I believe is typically English. It also seems to me to make a particularly pleasing slide show.
Please contact me through the web-site if you would like a slide show version of this or any other portfolio.
(Contains 17 photos)Views of New Year's Day 2006 in a magic light that we had during the last hour of daylight.
(Contains 4 photos)Views of London's Hammersmith Bridge in January 2008
(Contains 47 photos)Views of the River Thames between Reading and Henley. I had so many great photos from this trip that it was difficult to select the best ones. I think it makes an excellent slide-show.
(Contains 15 photos)Photos taken at the Thames Traditional Boat Rally at Henley-on-Thames in July 2009. I rather like the traditionally constructed Thames boats and there are a surprising number of them still in existence; some of them, like Alaska, (constructed 1883) are of a considerable age. Also included are a few non boat photos that caught my eye.
(Contains 26 photos)I went on a Salters Steamer from Wallingford to Reading and back in order to photograph places mentioned in Jerome K Jerome's 'Three Men in a Boat'. I don't think I could have wished for better weather, the Sun shone all day, there were hardly any clouds in the sky, and there was barely a breeze.
(Contains 30 photos)I made the trip between Windsor and Marlow by Salters Steamer on June 4th. The light was a little disappointing for the Windsor- Maidenhead section, but after Maidenhead the light improved and there were some awesome views of the stretch below Cliveden.
(Contains 51 photos)Photos from a walk along the river on December 17th 2006. There was a brilliant light and the tide was in too!
(Contains 53 photos)Photos from the River Thames between Putney and Richmond; I like the way that the light changes over the seasons. See also my album of River Thames pictures from Spring and Summer.
(Contains 23 photos)This is the River Thames between Putney and Richmond. The photos show how the light changes with the time of day and the season. View also the companion gallery which shows the same area in Autumn and Winter.
