River sky

 

A few more photo's I too from Days lock the other day only making sure there was a good helping of sky in them

On the way there I stopped off to get a photo of this new estate which is another piece of land grabbing so the farmland up to the bypass could be used for new housing, these are the first few built, all around more are going up.

Days lock only this time taken with my R6

Looking upstream from the lock

The other way through the lock, in the background you can see part of Wittenham Clumps

This a closer look taken from the bottom of the bridge, this part of the clumps is Castle hill which is an old iron age fort

From the bottom of the bridge again looking towards the weir

 
On the way home we stopped of at this place Neptune wood which is part of the Trafalgar woods project in 2005 to mark the Battle of Trafalgar. HMS Neptune was one of the ships in the battle
 
Happy Skywatch

  6. Greetings and Salutations! Nice sky photos. We have locks in the city of Chicago. Actually you can ride this boat and experience the lock. It is totally awesome trip. Photograph third from bottom really does look like a hill that a fort would be on because of elevation. Nice day to be out and about taking pictures for sure.

    1. I have swam through a lock many years ago on a sponsored swim in the next lock along. We started off nearby and were let through the lock. Strange experience being lowered and watching the walls get higher

  7. Are there many housing estates being built there? it's like we have so many new ones popping up here all the time because of people moving out of the big cities.
