Old river bed
27-SEP-2008 Steve Morris

Old river bed

Shrewsbury, England

Believe or not, this old reed bed is inside the town boundary and I've driven past it many many times without paying it much attention. On Saturday morning the Autumn mist gave it a stunning makeover and it almost took my breathe away!!
