Day 198 iii

How often have I marvelled at his great painting The Hay Wain on many trips to the National Gallery in London as a young boy. The scene was painted near Flatford Mill in Suffolk, which was owned by his father. I recently visited this hallowed spot which has changed little over the last two hundred years. All that were missing were the magnificent clouds of his painting.
