Already mid- February; late as usual, but i have been somewhat distracted, as my wonderful little sister died just before Christmas and the funeral didnt take place till well into January. I thought that this might be the most appropriate image that iIcould offer. It was taken, as many of my images are, in Hilliers Arboretum in Ampfield, Hants. It was taken at the beginning of Autumn. I am not sure whether it does the scene enough justice but the reflection and the colours were truly maganificent. I hope that you like it amd it conveys some of the peace that i found in it. I used the image last Autumn and I think the colour shows the hope of the arrival of Spring! I should be back to normal by next month, at least photographically speaking.
