My love of Autumn has been well documented here on Thinly Spread. I have waxed lyrical about autumn walks, jamming, baking, making and snuggling in. Like Rachael at Tales From The Village I have been looking for the first sign of Autumn since mid Summer! My camera has been glued to my eye and I have files and files of photos of those glorious autumnal colours.
But it isn’t just the rich hues, the foraging and the making which makes autumn such a special time of year. It’s something in the quality of the light. It has a warmth and a depth which casts long shadows and encourages a relaxing of the soul. It is why we take the family on a special holiday at this time of year. It is waking up in the dark and standing at a window in dressing gown and slippers with hands wrapped round a steaming mug of coffee and watching the sun come up.
This post was inspired by Tara Cain’s Photo Gallery at Sticky Fingers, this week’s challenge was Seasons. Do go and have a look at the other entries.
