I pack the van to head up to Yarndale tomorrow, so today is all about taking it easy. I try to get most of the show prep done well in advance. Going to a show is exhausting enough without having spent the week before working all hours to get the stock ready.
So today I joined Mum and Dad on their morning dog walk. We went up in to the forest 10 minutes from the house. Autumn is here, and the colours were beautiful.
The trees are still pretty green, but the Rosebay Willowherb or Fireweed has lost it's magenta flowers and is now looking very autumnal. Of course once the camera was out I started spotting colours...
Then when we got home the light was co-operating to capture Big Bird's plumage and it's lovely iridescence...
Looks like I might be doing a bit of work this morning after all. The siren song of October's gradient packs is calling.
