Day 322 – A Chilly Start…

After several weeks of persistent wet weather, a clear spell yesterday meant a really cold start to today, with mist and a ground frost. With fields all around us, it took only a moment to find a spot to shoot the early morning light.

Day 312 – Autumn Skies…

We had ‘a lot of weather’ here today – a fine start, then rain, cloud, and very late in the afternoon a couple of minutes where the sun shone through from under the clouds. This is just up the hill from our house.

Day 296 – A Spot Of Colour…

We are never going to see autumn colours here to rival those in New England, but they are pretty impressive nevertheless. This tree is just a mile or so from home and the best of the colours are coming through now …

Day 284 – A Last Rose…

The cold wet weather that we came back to yesterday is certainly impacting on the garden – there are fallen leaves everywhere and most of the perennial plants have finished flowering and are looking very sad. The roses usually last until the first hard frosts, and this beautiful blossom stood out from the yellowing plants around it. Probably the last we can expect this year though…

Day 279 – Blue Is The Colour…

I’ve seen lots of photos of Greece with the blue or white colour of church roofs, but I was still surprised at just how vibrant the colours are when set against a clear blue sky. This is another church in Fira, the main city in Santorini.

Day 270 – After The Storm…

Weather today was shocking – torrential rain for hours, but it cleared as we were driving home after spending lunchtime and the afternoon with friends, and we were treated to an excellent sunset. This was just a mile or so from home…
