From dawn till dusk it has been a fantastic weekend. The rich glow of the autumn leaves is everywhere. Nor is it at the moment cold, we have an unseasonable warm spell, which makes tramping through the woods even more enjoyable…and the smell as you crunch your way over the golden carpet is stimulating even though you realise that it is the signal that winter is on the way.
The low angle of the sun remains with us all day which only adds to the golden glow of autumn. Clear skies meant a swift temperature drop at days end and with it a mist start to form. Swans on the lake basked in late afternoon sun and the shadows once again extended adding there own character to the day.
As dusk fell, the shorter days suggested we should reluctantly make our way home. But the setting sun made sure we waited till it faded away…perfect
