After a sudden downpour the clouds were lifting and the tarmac (still warm from days of sunshine) was drying quickly.

 

 

Soon the sun was breaking through high in the sky, making the river sparkle…

 

 

and casting fleeting shadows.

 

 

Time to pause a while….

 

 

to take a few photos…

 

 

or to stroll along the water’s edge before the clouds started to gather again.
