Welcome to this rather late #sundaypics – the theme is ‘water‘.
There were quite a lot of entries for this, so I have tried to put them into categories. The first category is…
These were mostly because these were left over when I’d sorted everything else…
First up, we have a lovely ‘wish for snow at Christmas’ taken by @BestofTimes.
Now @ed_moose reflects upon the Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City, @Braziel messes about in boats, @00spiltmilk00 bends the rules slightly with ‘bloody expensive saline solution’, and @Alliterative looks down – at the Science North butterfly garden.
Next up, Animals
We start with @matt_cochr’s unusually named spaniel ‘Excuse’ (I might have misunderstood his tweet), @greythorne has water for dogs, while @OldMotherRiley has water for horses…though there is something a bit ‘doggy’ about those footprints.
A second picture from @TheTiniestVole – and judging by the very low point of view, I am starting to suspect that she is actually a vole. Then a smashing picture of the wonderfully named Minnehaha Falls from @ButMadNNW. Two words describe wombat76’s offering: Don’t. Blink.
This next pic is from someone ‘not on Twitter’ (no, I don’t understand that concept either) called JanineinSD, and shows her OH Barry & dog Ranger walking on water. Next @edinburghjo brings us the pond at Figgate Park, complete with a young man in a catalogue pose. Then @babymakingfiles finds Mercury in York.
@davidtims describes “A couple of random runners being rained on at Dorney Lake”, @Island252 takes a great shot of Boston’s Charles River (that’s the Boston in Massachusetts, not Lincolnshire), and @ButMadNNW has a bloke fishing in Lake Harriet (Minnesota).
Another shot of Dorney lake, this time from @JohnRands_TMTL. Apparently it is the site of the 10k run he was about to do. Presumably he runs around the lake….unless you know something about him that I don’t. Also, we have a great shot of some water lilies from @talojo.
Another shot from the tireless @ButMadNNW – the mighty Mississippi. @Underbundle brings us a bridge over one of Venice’s many canals (which are a bit like rivers – shut up), and @starlitwolf’s fine shot of the Shropshire Union Canal (which is really starting to undermine my system).
@SarahTregear is messing about in boats on the River Thames (yessss), @keithy73 shows us the River Wear at Durham (come on!) and the smashing @mikeybaer has the River Thames at dusk (in your face River-denyers!).
Three lovely shots here of a little supervised paddling. Frist @aMeadey seems to have forgotten the swimming trunks, second, I show The Boy the sea for the first time, and finally, @ElsieAssap misses the summer.
@davidtims rather modestly described this as “yours truly at the beach” – but forgot to mention that it is in Dubai. Swanky. Judging by the colour of the water in the next picture, @jonbradbury’s picture looks like it was taken rather closer to home, as does @IanRobinson’s rather enigmatic aerial photo.
I’m not sure what this one is of – I should probably ask @thedarkglove [update: it is Brighton West Pier – thanks @xkylet]. This second picture from @FBishWife apparently features @dustmotes, but I’m not sure if he is the heroic surfer, or the guy watching from the safety of the beach.
@Discombobul8r says simply “Hard Water”, @ButMadNNW shudders with “Brr”, but @AvenSarah is both proud and inclusive when she says “I went patriotic (sort of!) with our lake in winter. Snow & ice are water too!”
Go on now, go away – have you any idea how many tweets piled up while you were reading this??
