Early Autumn

Early AutumnEarly AutumnEarly AutumnI don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before but my favourite time of year is now -

the light, colours and foraging in hedgerows, what’s not to love.Early AutumnEarly AutumnEarly Autumn

Moon MoonOne of the benefits of the nights drawing in so quickly is the opportunity to see more of the night sky without staying up way past my bed time! These were taken the night after the harvest moon –  I have to confess it was one of those ‘I wish I had a better camera’ moments, or a steadier hand or even thought to go and fetch my tripod! Maybe next time.




Climb every mountain.

Or a reasonably high hill in Wales, Pen-y-Fan to be precise. You have to bear in mind that the rest of the country was bathed in sunshine but we turned left into the valley towards our hill and the weather got a little murky! So, the following photos are a little ‘atmospheric’ – stay with it though, there is a pay off at the end.Climb every mountain.Climb every mountain.Climb every mountain.Climb every mountain.

Ta dah!Climb every mountain.

I’m still playing catch up at the moment so… sometime this week they’ll be a post of an amazing sunset from a few weeks ago – it’s worth the wait though.Water and Stone
