Wonderful image, Brian.

I love how you have given pride of place to the reflected sky sheep.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, a reflection not to avoid.
Superbe paysage !
Brian Walbey: Beautiful isn't it.
A very nice shot of the meandering!
Brian Walbey: A lovely spot. This was when i strolled along with Bill and Alan and you strolled along with Maureen, Jean and Anne after we'd seen the Chinese House.
I especially like the clouds in the river.
Brian Walbey: A reflection not to avoid.

Considering the grandeur of the place and the weather we were lucky so few people were about..
Brian Walbey: It had only opened again for the season on the Friday and with the sunny weather being a bit unexpected we were very lucky not to get loads of people in the way of our pictures!
I can see why this was such a delightful spot for the meet-up, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Indeed a lovely place Ginnie, this was when I enjoyed quite a long stroll through the grounds with Bill and Alan, engaging in 'Men's Talk' as usual. A short way in front were Jean, Elizabeth, Anne and Maureen, what fine company we all keep.

What a wonderful, sunny day - but if angels are travelling ...
Brian Walbey: It turned out sunny despite a mixed weather forecast, hence the lovely reflection of the clouds.
Beautiful Brian, it is sow still.
Brian Walbey: We were very lucky Chad, the forecast hadn't been too promising.
I have a feeling I have a similar snapshot lined up somewhere in the near future!
Brian Walbey: You might well have bill, this was when you, Alan and I walked the long way back to the house with four of the ladies in front of us.
What a wonderful sight with the clouds reflections Brian!
Brian Walbey: It turned out sunny despite a mixed weather forecast, hence the lovely reflection of the clouds.

I can see this is your (and Maureen's) sort of place, Brian
Brian Walbey: I think it was everybody's place Lisl, at this point I was enjoying a stroll with Bill and Alan.
Very nice! I would have loved a walk here.
Brian Walbey: It is lovely Mary, and it would have been even more so if we could have had the pleasure of your company.

The clouds are wonderfully reflected in the river, Brian.

Taken from a most interesting angle Brian
Brian Walbey: Some of us walked back to the house the long way round and this was how it looked from some way upstream.

A great landscape, the weather is good and some good people are about. I missed out, but then, we have this weird president who does three financial ministers in 4 days. The price of flying tickets sky-rocketed.
Brian Walbey: It is lovely place to visit Louis, and it would have been even more so if we could have had the pleasure of your company. One day perhaps.

What lovely reflections Brian
Brian Walbey: beautiful aren't they.
Lovely shot, Brian, great reflections.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frank, beautiful aren't they.
A nice view, Brian.
Brian Walbey: We'd never walked up this end of the place before, a pleasant place to walk.

I read the comments and the replies. You were so lucky to have this as a meet-up place. I love the view and the weather was smiling at you.
Fabulous shot, a great memory of a wonderful day, I bet.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely place to go and we were lucky with the weather, it hadn't been too good leading up to that day. You and Ginnie were definitely missed though, next time maybe. We are meeting Martin and Elaine in July and hopefully Tom and his wife in May, and if we can sort a date out Bill in Droitwich, and we may even get to Bath this year and meet Chris and Lisl, fingers crossed on all of those.
