The photo was taken from a vista behind Springbank Gardens. Like many spots along the Thames River, small trails lead to these big, bright vistas or man and nature living harmoniously together. While that is not always the case, this is a good example of the wonder that is available along the Thames.

The photo was taken during a sketching trip with fellow artist Ruth Strebe in 2009. I love the intensity and immediacy of the rocks juxtaposed against the sweeping treeline and solitary tree standing guard in the background.

This was taken during London Pride 2010 at East Park Golf Course. What struck me was the way the eroding bank and rapids seemed to 'speak' to each other. I think this happens frequently for those who are willing to spend time with the river.
