Having spent so much of the last few weeks looking down at leaf litter I thought it was time I looked up before it was too late. Everyone has taken an image like this or has seen one like it on a photographic site (I’ve certainly seen a few on Instagram recently), but it is still fresh when you add one to your own archive – and I am sure that somewhere hiding away in a folder I do have a ‘looking up’ image.
Autumn seems to have hung on longer than usual this year but I suspect that the next few days with forecasts of rain and high winds will finally see this beautiful season draw to a close, and I will miss it.
The road sweepers are also busy clearing up leaves which means that we will also lose the leaves that currently are layered on the pavements. Nature and the elements combine to create their own unique compositions and this was one of a number that I saw earlier this afternoon in town
