Stopping on a small dyke, we look along the stretch of water and are amazed at the simple beauty of the scene.
Much of this area of West Norfolk, England, would be wetland, were it not for the Land Drain system that keeps the land drained.
The words Land Drain somehow seem prosaic and utilitarian, but over time even these man-made artifacts have become a part of the countryside.
The only hint that this is not a natural feature can be seen in the straight line of the waterway as it disappears into the distance.
Everything out in the scene is natural and the green fields counterpoint the white clouds, with the small glimpse of blue sky adding to the wonder of the scene.
It is a scene that makes us take a deep breath of fresh air, and feel again the wonder of being alive.
