October skies

In The Enchanted Village, we are enjoying the strong light of October, the month that is to winter what May is to summer.

The early morning frost sprinkles like fairy dust from passing Land Rovers. Wood smoke rises from the chimneys as we crunch through brown beech leaves.

In the afternoon, cows graze under Flemish landscape painting skies and at night, a waning Blood Moon holds court over an impressive Orion and ever-present Plough.

Oh, the joys of autumn.

That’s about it.

  3. Beautiful photo - it looks so tranquil and I love the way the clouds look so close to the ground.
