In-between the misty October days
there are gloriously sunny moments when all the autumn colours
come alive and glow
The tiny asters bring a welcome touch of vibrant purple
matching their centres to the burnished orange of the colours around them.
The first beech leaves to change colour stand out against
the other still-green leaves on the tree
Grapes ripen ready for harvesting with promises of juicy sweetness
or silky wine yet to be produced.
Tiny red berries create colourful droplets after the rain
and bright orange leaves burn with an inner light thanks to the angle
of the rays of the sun.
The shadows and lighting change and each leaf reflects the shadow
of the leaf opposite.
This little plump robin stayed around just long enough
for me to go click with my camera!
A charming garden shed takes on the warm colours of autumn
in the late afternoon sun.
Winter is coming
but for now
all is bathed in a golden light
and here we are!
