Quintin Lake recently completed a project to photograph the River Thames from its source in Gloucestershire to the City of London. Rather than chronicling the landmarks and buildings of the river bank, his images instead capture the varying light and textures of the water's surface. We've chosen six representative images above, but the full set — named Sweet Thames, run softly till I end my song — can be seen in higher resolution over on Quintin's website. Limited edition prints are also available.
