London

Autumn has arrived to the English countryside

Once a week, I journey up to work in the countryside. It is my respite from London’s congestion, noise, smog and concrete. During my week-long absence, autumn has arrived. The leaves have turned, the bracken has browned, the berries gone, and the fungi are out. It is amazing how suddenly the season changes.

In New Zealand, there was a long period of gradual decline in temperatures and without any noticeable change in the vegetation — we lack deciduous trees. Here these twenty degree days finished overnight. These pictures were taken on the last 20 degree day of the long beautiful summer.

I’m looking forward to my second autumn in the UK; how quickly time passes!
