That stunning moment

The Norfolk Broads really are glorious. In the perfect silence last night, the sky was clear and dark, the water as calm as a mill pond.

And in a first for me (I obviously don't get out enough!) I saw a perfect mirror image of the stars on the water's surface. The Plough, the North Star - all were perfectly reflected on a glossy black surface.

I'm sure it will sound trite, but it made me realise how little notice we usually take of our surroundings.

This morning it's pouring with rain, but that stunning moment will stay with me for ages.
