It is not surprising that the English are said to be always talking about the weather it is because we have so much of it. The four images below were all taken during this month-November 2012 and demonstrate the different conditions this month has brought.
A late afternoon shot of Marlow in late afternoon sunshine. Many of the trees are still supporting green leaves as Autumn has come very late this year.

A Study of Marlow Bridge
I made this image on Remembrance Sunday, one of the few times Marlow Bridge is closed to traffic. Normally the bridge is busy through the day, making photography almost impossible and not a little dangerous.
Marlow Suspension Bridge was designed by William Tierney Clark and constructed 1829 – 1832 to replace the old wooden bridge that had collapsed in 1828. William Tierney Clark also designed the Széchenyi Chain Bridge across the River Danube in Budapest and is a much larger scale version of Marlow Bridge.

Marlow Weir as the mist begins to fall
A spell of cold weather as well as long periods of heavy rain have removed most of the leaves from the trees. The heavy rain has also raised the river level, which in some ares between Marlow and Henley will have flooded the footpaths.
