Skywatch #121


We have been so blessed with blue skies here in the UK for the last week or so I decided to share more than one photo for this weeks skywatch.  The apple blossom has been lovely... I also received my first photo commission! This landscape photo of All Saints Church and The London Apprentice on the River Thames was made into a metre wide canvas print. I was quite jealous of my customer who got to keep it!


A much needed walk along the Grand Union Canal this week produced some nice snaps. This is the headquarters of Glaxo the big drug company which sits by the waterside...


A little further on and the canal becomes beautiful...



Framed in blossom...


Sunday afternoon was time for a stroll and a visit to a farm shop with some good friends...


And finally a visit to an inspiring place of worship, lazing on the grass outside for a few minutes before the service starts...


Have a great weekend!

I have never really explored much of the Grand Union Canal, looks like I will have to get my walking shoes on and go exploring. Nice pictures...
