I woke up an hour later than normal this morning. When I looked out of the window it was a wet morning. By the time I left home for work it had turned into a beautifully bright day.

The recent rains have really benefited the grass and the low angled morning light really highlighted it.

Yes, converted warehouses. I've mentioned Jeff before, an artist from the Midlands who regularly visits Totnes and produces pictures of his own "take" on Totnes; he and his wife are looking at renting one for their summer visit.

Jeff is currently producing a series of pictures on the colour of the river based on some of my photos...

I started my walk to work this morning half an hour after high tide. The current high tides are not the most extreme, so I wasn't sure how bad the flooding would be. I managed the first part of Riverside Walk, as far as the end of Snipe Island, with a little scrambling through the undergrowth beside the path. The river was practically static and with it being a bright morning there were some great reflections.
