Marais du Bessin

some shots of the flooded fields
 that are part of the Marais du Bessin.

Des marais, entre deux mers.

The marshes, between two seas.

All of these photos are beautiful - filled with light, as well as water.

And I really love your header photo, so snowy and Christmassy. Made me smile just to open the post.

How pretty the watery meadows look in the sunshine - hope the freeze has missed your area and that you aren't surrounded by skating rinks!

Wish we had more time and could pop across the Channel to see you - will wave from the Devon cliffs though!

Happy Christmas dear friend.
Hugs - Mary

Oh wow there must have been a lot of rain or snow there. I love your new header Maggie.

I'd be interested in seeing them when they're not flooded. Bet the water really greens the grass up!

Isn't it interesting, how the landscape is transformed with the seasons - and not just by snow?
