THE COLOURS OF AUTUMN





A couple of days ago, in patchy Autumn sunshine and dark clouds, I went for a walk around my local patch....Ashridge Estate, Ivinghoe Beacon hills and Incombe Hole. Whilst the sun was shining the golds and reds of Autumn made for a stunning display.

 Whitebeam     (I think!)

And finally.... I spied this chap admiring the view whilst taking a ride on a passing cloud!



Isn't nature a beautiful thing?
