The Mill Pond

This is one of my favourite places in Cambridge, the Mill Pond.  Here the River Cam splits, meandering around a meadow at the back of Queen’s College and forming a pool beside the Silver Street bridge.  From there the river flows on under the bridge, and in the other direction through the Backs, passing alongside many colleges.

The river splits – the punt drifting under the willows takes the route along the Backs, beside part of Queen’s College

    1. Thank you! I actually took these on my compact, before I got my D3100, but it was a beautiful day and the colours and detail came out really well
