Ochre, Rust and Mist

fenceIt may be dull but I love the subtlety of the colour at this time of year; everything is so harmonious; from the rusty iron railings and greeny buff concrete posts by the roadside through the dull green, ochre and even purplish tints in the hedgerow to the misty warmth of colours of the side valley of Smithy Brook glimpsed in the distance and beckoning me to take a Smithy Brook valleyday off to go stomping about in the countryside that is so near but which I get so little opportunity to visit.

The cloud lingered all day so we didn't get to see the partial eclipse of the sun this morning. Next Page
