What? Blogging two days in a row? Well, some miracles do happen.
I have been taking some days off to rest and relax, doing nothing much and enjoying the calm. Yesterday I went for a walk in the late afternoon and I really liked how autumn colours are gradually taking over the countryside.
Some leaves are barely starting to turn yellow, I loved the contrast with the slightly darkening sky.
But the colour palette gets richer at the foot of that tree. Lovely shades of pink, magenta and purple being born from the summer greens.
And some delightful dots of blue...
...slightly blurry because I used the macro settings of the camera but wasn't carrying a tripod with me.
Pink and green are not only for the Spring...
Sitting at the feet of a cluster of cypresses growing close together. The sun is setting on the other side.
A young pine tree growing in the shelter of a low cliff.
More pine trees up the cliff. The dark shadow in the middle is cast by the cypresses.
So, who's the techno-dreamer? Oh, I left her at home when I went out for my walk.
I was planning on taking a week off but it is becoming a two-week period of relax. I could well be in the place of Colombina in this picture!
