Beautiful Photograph du Jour

I'm a car guy, and more specifically a station wagon (aka estate car) guy. To my eyes, the Aston Martin Shooting Brake is the most beautiful ever.
Only very small numbers of several editions were built, the first in 1963 at the behest of Aston Martin's Sir David Brown, who found that the standard DB5 did not have enough space for his hunting gear, polo mallets and dogs. Poor chap!
The term "shooting brake" was once synonymous with wood-paneled British estate cars, which are known to Americans as "woodies."
