More Autumn Colours

Saturday, October 24th 2015

Autumn is progressing and the colours in Foxglove just keep getting better.   Around the lake the colours are deepening.

On a calm day the reflections are impressive.

Elsewhere on the reserve, reds, yellows and greens can still be seen, but the stark tree trunks and branches are beginning to show through.

Reds, yellows and greens.

The moor end of the Sycamore Avenue is always a joy to walk and in autumn the path turns orange with fallen Larch needles.

Walking around Foxglove at this time of year your eyes are drawn to the next tree and the next patch of colour but it is well worth lifting your eyes to the skies as they too can be dramatic.
