End of Autumn

Monday was a lovely day, glorious weather and pleasant company. I had coffee with sheaj34 in the morning and we had a good chat, she also gave me her "piece of art" which shows she knows me very well! From there I went straight to Chris's house for our bible study which went really well. On the way home I took this photo, because the world was looking so lovely and I just wanted to capture the light!!



Yesterday was much more mixed weatherwise, with sunshine and showers and a biting cold wind, the first day that really felt wintry. Despite that I had a great time shopping with Mum in Liverpool in the morning, we stayed in town for lunch too.

In the evening Ian, David and I braved the wind again to give out bags of sweets/lollies in the annual treat no trick thing in the roads around our church. It was fun, if rather chilly and well worth for the delight and amazement of people who find they're being given something rather than asked for something on Halloween night!

That sounds like fun!

Love the photo - the light is really well captured.

There is sometimes an amazing light before a storm or at dusk, when the trees stand out with incredible clarity and the leaves appear green in a lemon hued light. I remember trying to describe it in a fic once... ...goes to look ...oh, here,
Within half an hour, Sam was pounding across the bridge towards the park. Twilight bathed the trees in a soft, lemon-coloured light that emphasised the brilliant greens of the leaves. The air was crisp and still, rush-hour traffic already thinning, a few people on foot barely visible as the dusk deepened with startling rapidity.

Will you paint this one?

That's a really good description of the light, will I paint it? I'm not sure, I'm not sure if I could capture the brightness of those leaves... I may try, if I do, I'll post the result!!!

Hooray. But I agree, capturing that light would be challenging. We see it here occasionally at dusk, and the garden seems to come to life in a blessed kind of way.

Yeah, it was really beautiful, I was on my way to catch a train, but I just had to stop and take a photo!

Well, it's always good to be able to take the time to stop *g*
