To explain the blue of the water it was a very sunny day bright blue skies and with the water being shallow it makes it look more blue then it is.
Not one person had a rowing or sailing boat out the day we were there, the again even being sunny it was very cold and at times windy, as you can see even the geese sheltered under the large tree.
The same person being in the photo three times was put together from three different photos taken first from one side of the seat then the other and last from standing at the back by my friend in RAW format, they were then put together in Photoshop.
Please click on photos to make larger and see more detail!
My next photo blog will be of Burnby Gardens they have the National Collections of water lillies as well as beautiful walks and gardens.
