Advent-urous Artists Day 7

Don't you love those days that become special for the simplest of reasons?  This morning the world was a winter wonderland, the landscape was breathtakingly beautiful in places as I drove from March to Downham Market via a back route to avoid a road closure on  my usual route.  The trees were magnificent against the clear blue sky, dark trunks and frosted foliage.  As I drove alongside the bank that runs beside the Welney Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust I noticed the barbed wire fence was all encrusted with frost too and I couldn't resist the opportunity to hop out the car with my camera, revelling in my mission to get an interesting pic for Blipfoto!  As I stood there taking a few shots the silence was wonderful, only broken by the muted honking of geese on the reserve.  It was a perfect moment.  ;o)  On my way home, I had just turned onto a bridge across the river when a pair of magnificent Whooper swans that had just taken off from the river flew in front of me about a car's length ahead and only about 10 feet off the ground, it was a beautiful sight.  Happy days!  ;o)

Have a look at Rob and Ric's posts for today.  ;o)
