5 in 5 - May 2016 - Messing about on the river

Welcome to '5 in 5' where on the 5th of
each month I post 5 photos that I have
taken in 5 minutes.

In my last post here I wrote about how I took part in a video interview. This took place in one of my favourite locations and after the filming was complete I decided to give myself some quiet time to reflect. I sat by the river for a few minutes then decided this was a good time to take some photos for '5 in 5'. Come join me:

This bridge provided the backdrop of the filming. The metal construction is not elegant, but this narrow bridge has stood the test of time and has needed strengthening to carry todays traffic.  


This old granary mill stands at the mouth of the river. At the top is a tea room, I could sit here all day looking out of the window at the winding river. If only I had time.... (sigh).

And as a lover of boats and water I am at my happiest here. Boats come and go, and every year there is a raft race with much mayhem!

On the bank I found cowslips. A treat for the eye and not often seen, sadly.

I went home with a big smile inside, feeling a sense of achievement and peace. I wonder what gives you this feeling?

Thank you for visiting, and to Eileen, Melanie, Miriam, Maggie, Barbara, Karen and Borqna for joining in last month. It is always lovely to have company and if you feel inspired to take part yourself here is what you do:

1.  Choose a location.
2.  Have your camera ready.
3.  Set a timer for 5 minutes (I use my mobile phone).
4.  Take as many photos you can until the time is up.
5.  Choose 5 photos to download and share by using the link tool below. 

   Please note:
You have until the 25th of the month to add your photos to the link and you can take  your photos any time. They do not have to be taken or posted on 5th!

If you would like more information please go to the original post here where you will find more.


  1. I can't remember the last time I saw cowslips so it was lovely to see them in your photo.

    It looks like an interesting place just to 'be'and a good spot for some photography. Where is it please?

  2. I'm always glad to see places I don't know, and this is certainly a lovely spot!

  3. What a lovely location. I do love seeing cowslips. I also like the idea of the tearooms being at the top. Not only is there a lovely view but there is a chance of using up a few calories getting up there! I must now go back and look at your last post.

  4. It looks like a lovely spot. And it's nice to see some cowslips. I couldn't tell you the last time I saw any round here

  5. What a lovely 5 minutes I have spent with you today. The cowslips are so pretty, a lovely find early in spring.

  6. Cowslips are one of my favourite flowers and I have a few in a tub in the garden. There is a beautiful bank that is a nature reserve on the road between WSM and Bristol that is covered in cowslips just now. I love your 5, boats are irresistible to me too!

  7. Thank you very much for this challenge.
    I love your 5 too!
    Good luck!

  8. Boats and big skies always lift my spirits :). Super photos - and what a place for a cup of tea! Very enjoyable - I'm going back to admire those photos again.
