I met my brother, sister-in-law and nephew in the park today for some fun and photos. He had a great time roaring around the place and playing on everything.

Autumn colours

I went to Harcourt Arboretum this afternoon to try and catch some of the beautiful changing colours of Autumn. There are some beautiful acers there, whose rich red foliage catches the light just wonderfully at this time of year.

A bright autumn afternoon

The weather was miserable on Sunday morning - grey skies, and rain drizzling down all morning. By the afternoon, though, the sun was out and the countryside was bathed in that gorgeous, warm autumn light. I thought I'd make the most of it and head up to a local spot, Brill Hill, where there's a recently restored windmill and beautiful views over the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire countryside.
