For this chal­lenge, we sought to push the boat out. Thank­fully, so did ev­ery­one else!

The next card plucked from the deck was de­cep­tively sim­ple: re­flec­tions. We were al­ready in the vicin­ity of Cotswold Wa­ter Park, a sprawl­ing col­lec­tion of fish­ing and recre­ational lakes near Swin­don, and spent a few hours look­ing for fish­er­men to add a per­sonal touch to our shots, but it was just too windy to shoot any re­flec­tions.

As an al­ter­na­tive, we thought it might be fit­ting to add another clas­sic shot to our week­end hitlist – a lone pier stretch­ing into a lake – but this was al­most a chal­lenge too far. Piers didn’t seem to ex­ist here. Even a lo­cal fish­er­man couldn’t help us pin­point one. Google Im­ages came to the res­cue again, of­fer­ing tan­ta­lis­ing glimpses of a cou­ple of small jet­ties, but no real lo­ca­tion in­for­ma­tion. It took an hour to find them in the end, and that was only by chance, when we caught a brief glimpse of them through a hedge as we drove around the area. Ten min­utes later though, it was job done.

Lovely new houses, but no piers or clean re­flec­tions in sight!
