It's not in my nature to be up with the lark, I'm much more of a night owl; but inspired by Bunny Mummy's post with lovely photos of the morning light, I thought I would check it out for myself. With sunshine forecast for yesterday it was perfect for me to see what I've been missing. I suppose being out and about at half seven may be the norm for a lot of people but it took a bit of effort on my part!
I must say I wasn't disappointed....
The long shadows stretched across the frosty fields
In the opposite direction the moon was still up
I loved the patterns on this frozen puddle, but needless to say I couldn't resist breaking the ice on it after I'd taken the photo!
On this part of the footpath the grass was still frosty but the frost on the hedge was thawing in the sunshine
and here the frost on the barbed wire has melted into droplets (if you haven't already, you'll need to click on the photo to see them)
I saw this crab apple tree in someone's garden which was chock-a-block with tiny yellow apples
The same garden had a tree that had shed these leaves
Further on three roe deer ran across the path. I only managed to get a pic of the last one as I was too slow getting my camera out
By the time I got to this point I'd been out for two and a half hours so the sun was well and truly up, and it felt really warm just here
There's still a surprising amount of trees that haven't got their autumn colours yet but there were some nice ones in this wood
This has been a very photo heavy post, so well done if you've made it this far, and I hope you enjoyed my early morning walk as much as I did!
