Wendover arm by night

The basin at the end of the Wendover Arm is as good a place as any to watch shooting stars, in the south east, anyway. Daytime too, there's various small birds* diving in the water for fish, must more satisfying to watch than the omnipresent human fish-torturers, certainly.

I had hoped to lie on the roof, but an earlier shower (when I was walking back from the reservoir, of course) left it wet and unwelcoming. Also, me being me, a tripod & decent camera weren't to hand; I didn't get any meteorite pictures, but did turn the camera around a little (Perseids meteor shower from the east, as any fule geek knows) to take a badly composed picture of the plough:

* terns, apparently
