Winter reds

January is not the best month for tramping around Ham Lands as the grey skies drain most of the colour away and the wet ground is both slippery and heavy underfoot but I still love to do it.

The bad weather keeps most of the people away (and one of the paradoxes of Ham Lands is that it better without people but people need to be there to appreciate this) and there are things to appreciate such as the trees stripped of their Summer clothing and the colourful remnants of Autumn's crop of berries.

If you look hard enough you will find these particular red berries somewhere between Teddington Lock and Riverside Drive.
