An early morning stroll in the Costwolds, England
I woke up this morning and the sky was clear - not a cloud in sight. The mist was begining to lift as the air began to warm. A golden opportunity to take a short 5 minute trip into the cotswolds to take some photos at one of my favourite locations - Lechlade.
Lechlade is a small village that has a very young river Thames running through it. The river Thames starts not far from here and travels easterly to the capital city of London.
Following the heavy downpour of rain that we had earlier this week, many of the fields and woodlands were waterlogged. This gave the secenery an even greater sense of Autumn.
The photo below is one of my favourite shots of the morning, the ground was still wet with dew and covered in cobwebs. I think images like this one truly represent the time of year.
The bridge over the river Thames is a great place to stand and watch the mist slowly drift away from the river...
...The two photographs below were taken standing on the bridge within a couple of minutes of each other at around 10:15am and clearly show the shifting mist.
So, that's what I spent my Sunday morning doing. I hope the weather stays like this for a few weeks - I simply love the Autumnal feeling, with the trees changing colour, the mist in the mornings and the crisp fresh air.
