autumn morning, misty meadow

We’re still enjoying warm, sunny afternoons at the moment, but the evenings are starting to draw in, and the mornings definitely have more than a hint of autumn to them.

We had some errands to run in Brioude today, so we headed off on our daily walk earlier than usual, before the morning mist had cleared. The sun was just starting to break through, and the light was really magical, making the familiar scenery look strange and alien. The Queen Anne’s Lace in this meadow looked particularly stunning.ย Every leaf and cobweb was bejewelled with tiny, sparkling droplets of water, just catching the low morning light.

It was an unexpectedly lovely start to the day, and it just goes to show that you should always take your camera out with you, even on unpromising-looking days, even when you’re just walking up the lane. You never know when the familiar will be transformed into something extraordinary.

  1. Simply beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚ I love autumn – it is probably my favourite season (though spring, which we are now coming into, here in the southern hemisphere, is a close second). I quite agree “you should always take your camera out with with”. You’ve captured some lovely shots here!
