Golden Autumn

This morning's sunrise was amazing, the clear sky lit up an unusual and beautiful glowing yellow, which became quite eerie until the sun fully rose.

The trees this year are astonishing. Most have been late to start turning and the relative lack of high winds means that even now, most trees still have their leaves. Leaves of gold, yellow, orange and red, which glow beautifully in the low sunlight.

These turning leaves contrast beautifully with the leaves that are still ochre or green on many trees and the amazing abundance of berries of all types that we're seeing this year.

A wonderfully golden autumn.

Photo? Please? (Our fog has been so thick all day for so many days that we don't know if the trees still have leaves or not.)

Optimistic, bunnits - thanks

Rabbits Guy - i didn't have my camera with me yesterday but I'm hoping to get some photos today. I find autumn trees really difficult to catch on camera...
