Happy Fence Friday to you all. I trust you are all safe and well and looking forward to the weekend. Thank you for visiting my photo-stream this past week and leaving comments and/or stars.

We decided to visit one of our favourite (and most photographed) places yesterday for a gentle walk as it's only a 10 min drive away. There were a few people around, mainly families with children and some dog walkers but everyone was being sensible and maintaining social distancing where possible (some of the footpaths are quite narrow).

This was taken just after high tide. Just past the mill is a mill pond, full of swans, gulls, ducks, coots etc and also home to a large colony of Egrets (I spotted at least 13 in the trees) and a couple of Grey Herons. The Egrets and Herons all sadly, too far away for a decent shot, even with my 100-300mm zoom lens.

More of the mill's history here if you're interested: www.hampshire-history.com/langstone-mill

Best viewed large on black. Thank you.

You have shown us this scene before, but it's well worth a second view. Very painterly, and could almost be an old master by Constable.
HFF, and enjoy your weekend, Keith.

I can imagine this being the subject of a painting Keith. It's beautiful, down to the buildings, the lightly rippling water and the marvelous sky! Egrets are such a wonderful sight! I am pleased you and your wife have been able to travel a little farther to enjoy a walk.
HFF and wish you a very good weekend.

HFF, Keith!
It's a beautiful group of buildings with the old mill and the other house. The stairs of the left house lead directly into the water if it is high tide. If one's step out of the house he gets wet feet. And so many fences! One of them leads into the water.

The property is only accessible on foot when the tide is in.......or by boat.

A beautifully composed painterly shot. I like the boat in the foreground and the fence going into the water. The sky is lovely too. Nice clouds. I'm glad you are getting out and about. Our chilly and wet weather has put me off for the moment.

Excellent water scene Keith with plenty going on, I can see the interest for the camera, better still if a Tea room was open somewhere.

Thanks Eunice. It's quite close to home and one of our favourite places to walk. Besides the Mill and Mill Pond there are two great pubs, both of which serve good food (but not at the moment unfortunately).
