It has been so beautiful here these past few weeks. Everywhere I go - the simplest errand - I am just stuck by how beautiful it is. It's not just the colors, but the low golden light through the colored trees and the texture and variety of the undergrowth now that there are fewer leaves. It's also the way the houses, and bridges, and rivers etc. look next to the trees. And the sound of dry leaves underfoot and the kind of peppery/smoky smell of autumn.
None of these pictures really capture it - the COG has done a much better job, but it's really just impossible.
