Spring is in the air and all around is blossom and colour as the trees burst into bloom and patchwork fields turn yellow, writes photographer Andy Abbott.

Today my journey is south and in my travels occasionally covering assignments across the River Stour I have often stopped to admire and picture the countryside that has inspired artists and authors in the past.

In springtime Essex paints a pretty picture.
