Rutland Water

These pictures were taken at Rutland Water on Sunday morning, around 7:30 or so. It started as a fabulously sunny and windless day - so much so that the yacht racing was cancelled, and the fishermen (sorry, fisherpeople) had the water to themselves. As can be seen from the first image, there was a hot air balloon drifting slowly by - the views must have been spectacular. By 3 in the afternoon, however, it was "blowing a hooley" (not sure of the spelling for this technical angling term!) and had gone very cold. Still, with 8 fish in the bag, it was a Grand Day Out.
