Scene Writing Term 4

I turn around and in front of my eyes I see a spectacular sight. An isolated scene meets my eyes. White, frosty tree branches reach above the water like icy fingers scratching the cold, crisp air. The freezing water has small ripples on the surface and the small banks are covered in powdery snow. Two tiny ducks glide around under the wooden bridge, which rises majestically above the water. The shimmery water reflects all above it. Snow is heavy on the trees and their branches, drooping down.  A small lamp post stands alone near the bridge. Light blue sky peeks between the trees. A dreamy, serene, snowy scene.
