Autumn Colour – Eaves Wood and Haweswater

Autumn Colour I

The post title almost says it all – yet another weekend of stunning autumn weather. Spent the first half of it stuck inside at work. (My own fault: overtime pay is almost unheard of in my line of work, and when it was offered, back in the summer, I reckoned on giving up a drear, damp day for my shilling.)

Fortunately, the Sunday was another corker.

The autumn colour has been superb this year, and I’d vowed that I would only take photos that captured the over-all effect, and, for once, not grub around in the leaf litter, taking close-ups of sparkly leaves catching the light.

It’s an unshakable resolve that I have. A will of iron.

…didn’t take any of those either, after-all, I’ve already posted innumerable photos of that sort.

By Haweswater, I watched a bizarre relay – first a jay fussily coasting through a stand of trees like a tramp steamer calling in at every port/branch, then a wood-pecker, apparently disturbed by the jay, sky-writing a low-amplitude sine curve over the field, coming to land in a dead tree and, in its turn, putting up a wind-hover, a striped female, which glided away to a new perch by the water’s edge.

  1. Spiders web for me as well – really nice. The autumn colours have faded over this side of the country. Just a few trees with the odd leaf still clinging on.

  2. Great photos – especially of the leaves – so glad you took them. A great corner of the world (lived in Halton through secondary school years). Really enjoying looking through the site.
