Well, the past couple of days or so has seen a bit of a respite from the latest effects of storm Henry (Named on:30 January 2016; Date of impact on UK: 1-2 February 2016).
There have been some occasional blue skies in the Breamish Valley, the wind has abated a bit (which means I can now go out cycling again) and there are signs of Spring cropping up everywhere.
Respite in the weather – looking towards Reaveley
River Breamish flotsam of trees
washed in rushing runs;
and worn out:
a journey to the sea
After Storm Frank and the wet, wet wet weather, we had a break in the rain again yesterday and that strange golden orb in the sky that we haven’t seen for so long, shone awhile.
Autumn leaves in the Breamish Valley
crimson – gold – amethyst – black – ginger – cerise – magenta – cobalt – russet
What colour are your Autumn leaves?
Cherry red, golden brown – a favourite season!
It’s little wonder that Autumn is so many people’s favourite season.
Leaves are ablaze with colour. And everywhere in the Breamish Valley there’s an extravagant firework display of ochres, glinting golds, coppers and rich reds.
And, best of all, it’s absolutely free!
