I took this photo today during our walk beside The Broadwater, which is really near our house. The walk beside the lake was really overgrown for years, but now that they are reclaiming some of the water meadows beside the Thames in their construction of Walton Bridge the path has been cleared a little to provide more recreation space.
Being water meadows, wellies are always a good idea, even in mid summer. A lot of the path is below the level of the lake.
I love the reflection of the leaves in the almost completely still water.
I took lots of photos today, it will be even more beautiful once the leaves start to turn!
