Bowing tree

As the tow path follows the river West and down-stream towards Teddington Lock it comes across this tree paying homage to the mighty Thames. Branches defy the call of the sun and, instead, lean towards the water.

A less poetic view is that the river won this worship by relentlessly undermining the trees roots causing it to tumble in fear and pain towards its victor.
