This is why I live in Ham

The summary says it all, Ham lies between Richmond Park and a long bend in the Thames. The result is plenty of wild open spaces to ramble through and a long tow path to stroll along.

The weekends are when the rambling happens and the scenery is enjoyed at leisure. During the week the quick strolls reinvigorate me after long hours chained to the PC in my study.

This picture was taken during one of those quick strolls which was made just before sunset.

The location is by Teddington Lock, which was built to by-pass the wier in the picture. The footbridge across to Teddington provides an elevated platform from which to savour the river as it curls indolently towards Kingston. Magic.
