Autumn in East Devon
With the Xmas season fast approaching, the autumn is giving way to colder night time temperatures and the logs are stacked ready for setting the open fire in the lounge. I am a confirmed cyclist, going out on the bike daily to get the health benefits that kind of routine has to offer, and in addition get to see and really appreciate the seasonal changes. Back in October I took the camera and thought you might like to see what I mean.
I love this time of year as the weather changes and the days grow shorter. A definite sign that autumn is here is when the deer start foraging in the fields.
The pictures below of the sunset were on a late bike ride and taken by Carolyn who had brought the camera hoping to see the deer. Sadly the field they like to graze in has now been ploughed and she has not seen them this year.
The sun in the picture above was just starting to go down and literally disappeared behind the horizon within about a minute and a half. I can't remember seeing the sun go down so quickly.
The colder often inclement weather is perfect for wargamers as our hobby comes into its own when forced to spend more time in doors; more reading, more painting, more playing and more planning of future projects and trips to make when the days grow longer and the weather improves.
