I got my friend G to take me out to the leafy wilds last weekend, the weather was fine and I hoped that there'd be the beginings of a display of autumn colour to photograph for my work. I was a touch disappointed. Apparently, so I've read, this year's weather conditions mean that the trees are shedding their leaves more quickly than usual, which means they'll barely have the chance to change colour before they're fluttering to the ground.
We stood beneath this tree late on Sunday afternoon listening to leaves and seeds dropping all around us. Squirrels darted across the path, timid and forgetful.
I've been working on my own autumn walk this morning. Here's some work in progress.
