An unexpected sunny day arrived last week so I took the opportunity to sneak an hour or so getting to grips with the video function of my new camera. Shiplake is a small village on the outskirts of Henley On Thames. Locks are generally tranquil places where progress has to take turn with the regimental movement of water levels. But there is a determination of purpose that belies the rather quaint work flow of moving boats through the lock. It just appears to happen at a set pace, slow by necessity but get’s the job done.
