This tranquil scene is a view across the River Thames from my window.

The water with the colours and the trees reflected in it always fascinate me.  

The River Thames is 215 miles long, and is split into two sections, tidal and non-tidal. The tidal part, which is affected by the North Sea’s tides, runs for 68 miles from the mouth of the river to Teddington Lock in west London.

And the non-tidal section is 147 miles long from Teddington Lock to the source of the river in the north of Kemble, a village in Gloucestershire.

I live on the river’s edge of the non-tidal section where many beautiful trees and shrubs grow and wildlife abounds.
