On my little strolls, I begin to notice tinges of colour. These photos are from one walk. Soon enough autumn will be in full gallop. We are probably only two weeks form the beginning of significant colour and three or four weeks until the peak and the subsequent diminishment.
But before we get to the tinges ...
... above and below are two snaps showing how low our water is running as a result of our droughtish conditions.
Above: you can pretty much see the more usual waterline in the boulders.
Below: you see much rock in this photo, but almost none of it is visible in a normal year.
Now for the tinges of colour but also the tinges of regret. There is anticipation of the autumn colours, but tinges of regret for the passing of summer and the coming of a very long winter. No further comment needed.
