Cambridge Autumn

I thought I would pay another visit to Cambridge before the autumn colours give way to the winter. This time I visited the north east side of the Cambridge. I started at Parker's Piece working my way across the open parkland towards the River Cam. This blog is in two parts. Part 1: Autumn colour. Part 2: River Cam.

Cambridge River Cam

This is Part 2 of my Cambridge walk.

This young man was training, he had been sent out to practice, he said he had been told to do five hours of punting to become proficient, he looked very good to me.

This next set of shots were taken of this group of people enjoying the river. The woman doing the punting took over the pole and it was obviously her first time. The group had a lot of fun watching her have a go and getting in a tangle manipulating the pole. I was worried that she was about to fall in. I promised to put some shots on the blog hence the number of images of this one group.

By this time the light was failing, I asked if I could visit this club and get a few shots of this crew setting off on a training trip and they very kindly said yes.

Marks Hall Autumn Colours 2017

We took another look at the autumn colours unfortunately the light decayed very quickly today. Marks Hall has become one of my favourite places for a walk.

This monument is a tribute to the airmen and women based at the nearby WW2 airfield, Earls Cone. As today was remembrance Sunday I have taken a few shots of the plaques & tributes.
