Colours

With the weather this morning being somewhat less bright and sunny than the forecast promised, we set out for a rather misty and damp wander up Shipley Hill.  The first signs of autumn are beginning to be seen among the trees.  One large Sweet Chestnut tree atop the hill is starting to turn its leaves from the usual bright green, to paler, golden hues.
The Maples are also turning and their autumn colour is perhaps the best known of all.  Here, they are adding a little colour to the hedgerows which skirt the hill.
Closer to them and you get a lovely view through the leaves.
The shortening days and cooler nights at this time of year gives us some nice moonscapes too. This one, as seen from our front window last night.
