Every day you think it can’t get more beautiful – and then it does!

The wonderful thing about autumn is how it progresses. First there is the excitement of a touch of colour on the first leaves, the anticipation of things to come. Then where the sun touches the tops of the trees and edge of the woods, you get the first flash of gold, and the first touches of bright yellow and red on the maples.

The changes are subtle and slow. You always think you have taken your last, best pictures of the autumn colours.

And then it changes again, and gets more golden, more orange, more red, and more beautiful.

Today it was quite dull, but the colours were outstanding in the woods. The leaves were falling fast, thanks to the strengthening wind, forming a golden brown carpet on the paths. And above, a symphony of gold with the structure showing through. At last we can see the branches again now the leaves are thinning.

This time of year is stunning. I love all the seasons for different reasons, but autumn is quite simply the best. Every day you think it can’t get more beautiful – and then it does!
