That time of year
It is that time of year again when all the flowers and trees start changing into their autmnal colours of all the different shades of yellows and browns then most of the flowers will fade away waiting to be awoken again the following spring while the trees shed their leaves in preparation for the onset of winter. This can be a magical time of the year for photography as you get to see things in a different way for example a stunning oak with all is foliage looks like a picture out of a fairy tale while in winter it becomes something completely different when all its foliage has gone on a misty winters evening one can almost see the figures and ghosts of the undead swirling and gyrating in the mist below the branches.
It is also the time of year when we get the chance to see different species of birds as they pass through on their wintry migrations sometimes you may see something rare for your area of the country that you may only see once in a blue moon for example last year at about this time we had an unexpected visit from a rare wading bird a semi-palmated sandpiper and a fleeting visit from some brent geese other parts of the country may be used to such visitors but for a small area like this it is a lovely happening so with any luck may we be as lucky this year.
