England in AutumnFor the time of year, I don’t think it can get much more English than this. At least, that was how I felt as I saw this vista in South Derbyshire, yesterday. I always get very thoughtful when I find scenes like this one; I think of so many young men from towns and villages, marching away to war, many of them never to return. Does anyone else feel this way?

Silk Tassel BushAt this time of year, although there are lots of wild fruits and berries, there are not so many other exciting plants to look at. This one, however, is of note – the silk tassel bush, or Garrya elliptica. Its stunning catkins last into the winter. Today, they caught my eye by the light of the morning sun.

Evening SkyIf you asked me for one good reason (aside from the family considerations that most of us have) to stay in England, I would probably say “For its skies.” The ever-changing skies of England are especially noticeable around the equinoxes; perhaps due to the greater occurrence of high winds in the upper atmosphere. I took this picture only today – a day of a great mixture of weather. I’ve given you the shot as I took it – it hasn’t been edited, other than to scale the image for publication here.

Marina - ReflectionsMost of you who drop in and view this blog will know about my fascination with reflections. I took this shot yesterday (Saturday) evening, at a nearby marina. The geometric effects created by the shapes of the boats and pontoon intrigued me. ‘Magic Hour’, the hour after sunset, always adds its own character to photos.
