It's proving to be a gentle autumn. Last week there had been little leaf fall and the countryside was still looking green, only the tops of trees that had been caught by the breeze were shedding their leaves.
But this week the nights are colder and the landscape is changing. Light levels are low in this dank, misty weather.
Now I can kick my way through a carpet of dry leaves.
And just look at what a little cheating on photoshop can do!
