Snow melt

A brief interlude of warmer weather, snow disappears down in this part of Essex but the bottom fields by the rivers are flooding, creating moody brown/green landscapes.
The water tumbles and ripples gently in the river channel, leaching out with slow grace over the fields as it drowns the grass, was this how the first water meadows came into being?

This photo is taken through the blue tinged windscreen of the car, I love how the old trees are left and respected in the landscape, and here we see new hedges planted, and a middle line of trees that will eventually, given time, replace the graceful old 'tree ent' shaped by the prevailing wind.
