Sticking with the catalogue of photos from Septembers in the past, this one from 2009 would have been a fitting candidate for my series on Looking Down.
Another image from the same walk as the last several posts, in September 2009.
Just before we got to Waverley Abbey with our US guests I saw this view of the River Wey. Gorgeous!
We took a longish walk with our US guests, through the Moor Park along the River Wey. Again the reflections of the foliage in the river got my attention.
We next descended the Dean Bank to the Water of Leith, with the trees above it beautifully reflected in the water, tempting me to take too many similar pictures. Click any of the images below to see them bigger (you may need o click into the post title first if you’re not viewing this directly on the web site).

I’ve written about this before. While the English still abhor the enclosure of the commons centuries ago, and the encroachment of the private on public spaces, to an American, the ubiquity of public footpaths crossing private land for rambling in the countryside is almost miraculous.
At the north end of the park, ice flowed down glacial rocks. A stunning sight, it was difficult to quickly capture an interesting picture (click either image to see them both enlarged).
Perfect for the haiku project?
