The light at this time of the year is always a treat.
At times it's a brilliant backdrop to the leaves as they slowly change from a dark green to a bright red.
At other times it's dark and brooding, threatening to rain at any moment.
And after the rains, the sun seems extra bright as it pours into our cottage.
Even the animals seem to enjoy the light at this time of the year.
Some of the most dramatic moments are just as the sun is going down for the night. I came across this scene a few evenings ago as I was walking Fergus. I loved the contrast between the heavy, black clouds and the lights in the nearby cottage window.
I'm very much hoping that this coming season of diminishing light will also be one of great brightness. It's nice to be back...
