Whilst on my venture out into the snow covered landscape of Nottinghamshire, along the A616 towards the villages of Kneesall and Ollerton, I stopped in a lay by just outside the village of Caunton. I was trekking along the side of the road to get a good angle of a snow covered field. After taking the shot, I began making my way back to the car when I noticed for the first time a stream that was running along side the main road. Because it is covered by brush and trees, I had not realised it was there. So I decided to work my way through the thick brush and thorny tentacles of the undergrowth, eventually coming to the waterway’s edge. It is not a major tributary or a proper river, so there is no name for it, though it does seem to run the length of two large fields, and then makes it’s way under the main road, continuing to flow in a south easterly direction. I was very struck by the contrast of the white snow that covered all the plants that line the stream, and of the green ivy growing up the side of the tree. I think I may return some time in spring to see what colour there is. Whilst taking this photo, I was precariously perched against a tree behind, hoping only not to fall into the bitterly cold water.
