There's autumn in them there hills

I realise that not everyone likes autumn as a season, but I think most people like the way it looks. In the past couple of weeks I have seen some lovely northern hemisphere autumn photos on my friends page, and thought it was about time I made a contribution.

So last weekend, with Saturday being actually sunny, I drove up onto the nearby Quantock Hills to see whether 'the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness' had kicked in. And, the answer was mixed. Yes, some things were showing real signs of autumn, some trees had turned to beautiful colours, while others were being a bit awkward and hanging on to their summer clothes beyond their sell-by date.

I started by dropping in on Hawkridge Reservoir, which is usually a lovely spot. It was still fairly 'green' there. So on I went through and above the village of Over Stowey. This was more like it. I stopped in a few places to take photos, including a lovely bit of open ground with a gorgeous view across to the Bristol Channel and the Welsh coast beyond. Then I headed down the other side of the hills, stopping when I found a couple of rows of perfect-looking beech trees, to the village of Crowcombe, before heading home.

I hope you like what I managed to see.
