Autumn walks...

I think this is the time of year for misty days, muted colours and cool breezes. There is a dampness in the air and, although the first few days of November have been unusually mild, my walks this week have been typical of that. 

Last Sunday I walked with a friend through the woods at Fairhaven Gardens. There were some slightly random things dotted about from a hallowe'en event the night before (spot the mummy hanging from the tree?!) but in spite of that it was beautiful and slightly ethereal in the mist...



Lovely autumn colours and low light...


Hazy reflections on the broad...


If it hadn't been so damp, I think there would have been a satisfying crunch underfoot...



Funny how you can live so close to somewhere most of your life and never know it's there. These are huge trees that dwarfed us...



Then this Sunday I walked with another friend along the coast from Walberswick to Dunwich. There was a stiff breeze off the sea but the light and the sound of the waves was just restorative.


I don't relish the slide towards winter and short grey days but there is undoubtedly something special about this season as much as any other.

  2. Love your photos Sandra. Autumn is growing on me as I get older and this year it was especially nice I think...or maybe I just noticed it more.
