The challenge for us, especially when out and about walking here in our home county of Norfolk, can be to avoid roads. Once we’ve parked the car we prefer footpaths, tracks, bridleways. However, every now and then we have to cross or do a short section of road to get to where we want to be.
This photo was taken close to the junction of Chequers Lane and Wash Lane on the outskirts of Saxlingham village (7 miles south of Norwich) on Christmas Day 2016. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed a nice walk before getting together with Tims family for the rest of the day.
With the low sun almost directly in front of me I ignored all warning signs on the camera, crouched down and took the shot.
These were taken just a minute before hand at the junction. As you can see the road is wet as well as muddy but there’s a useful foot way on the left.
