Out & about in South Lincolnshire and the Fens - photo special!

For our latest Out & about photo special we are using a set of photographs taken just over six months ago on the 1st November 2012 but not yet featured on the blog, a day on which along with friend and fellow bus enthusiast Damon Powell we explored some of Norfolk Green's services in South Lincolnshire and the Fens.

The day was very enjoyable although pretty horrific weather-wise, however it did allow for some atmospheric shots to be taken in the wet weather, the scenes in this photo special were taken in Sutton Bridge and Wisbech.

As the storm clouds grew ever darker in Sutton Bridge, Norfolk Green Optare Solo 604 Y58 HBT arrived just in time to rescue us from the impending downpour and to take us on route 50 to the fenland town of Wisbech.
