Great shots and a contrast in the weather conditions.
I particularly like the photos of the church on the water and the sheep. Unusual selfie too!

Tufted ducks are wonderful, they are like black and white painted warships sailing in flotilla formation.

When my family visit, we set up at the main bit with the bike shop and the cafe, sit there with a primus making cups of tea.

Thanks, Ida - Rutland Water is always a good local standby, and there is always something to snap.

Good one, Simon! We take a flask to make coffee, but nearly froze today in the cold wind!

Brave souls out there on the water!

That's what I thought!
