The A12 road is gateway to East Anglia.
Originally this highway followed the route of the Roman road closely and so is fairly straight.
Claudius set up his first capital at Camulodunum (Colchester) before he upped and moved to Londinium in AD43.
Now the road often modified and improved streams with traffic day and night, cutting through Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk.
I pulled over and parked up along Cranes Lane to make a drawing of this humming road set against low fields woodlands as pale February sun sets low and early.
