We were heading from Stow-on-Wold to Pembroke Dock and stopped off at Ross-on-Wye for lunch. The rowing club was holding a regatta or training day. I photographed some of the activities happening on the river near the club. Ross Rowing Club has members competing in regattas all over the country. The rowing club has a successful junior programme and in August organises one of the largest club regattas in Britain.
Ross-on-Wye (Welsh: Rhosan ar Wy) is a small market town in south eastern Herefordshire, England, located on the River Wye, and on the northern edge of the Forest of Dean.
Ross-on-Wye was the birthplace of the British tourist industry. In 1745, the rector, Dr John Egerton, started taking friends on boat trips down the valley from his rectory at Ross. The Wye Valley's particular attraction was its river scenery, its precipitous landscapes, and its castles and abbeys, which were accessible to fashionable seekers of the "Picturesque". In 1782, William Gilpin's book "Observations on the River Wye" was published, the first illustrated tour guide to be published in Britain.

You chose a very nice angle, this creates a wonderful depth and perspective picture.
Also the river and the bridge in background are nice additions, the people with dog together, care for a completely image.
Very well composition, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

A pleasing capture of this animated river scene where all the elements are nicely placed in the frame, resulting in a pleasing well balanced composition. The light is very appealing and the colours pleasant and natural. Very good clarity.

Den här bilden, med sina vackra pastellfärger, påminner mig om en illustration till en barnbok. Den får mig absolut att tänka på Enid Blyton's böcker om "Fem", fast här är det mer än en hund. Det är en mycket fin komposition med trivsam stämning bland barnen och hundarna och ett vackert landskap.
