Misty Autumn Morning
I haven't had much time to write this week so far but here are a few images I took on my walk this morning, it was a misty, damp and humid day but the woods looked rather beautiful and one or two things caught my eye. The only sounds were the constant patter of raindrops from the wet leaves that were being disturbed by squirrels scampering through the tree tops, the constant thud of acorns and sweet chestnuts falling to the ground and the occasional sweet sound of robins singing
This was an old log covered in lichens and various bits of greenery, I just liked the way it all looked as a still life.
Another log covered with a thick carpet of moss and two different kinds of toadstools
I saw this fallen tree and it made me think of a huge primeval insect!
This was a single brilliant patch of colour on an otherwise still completely green bramble bush
Here the changing leaf colours make it look as though the sun was shining although it wasn't. Even though I walk these woods every day I'm always finding new interesting or beautiful things to look at as the wheel of the year turns.
