Autumn Splendor

It definitely feels like autumn here in Sacramento. The late evenings and early mornings are cooler now, and some much-needed rain fell upon the city over the past few days. While I am not thrilled at the prospect of more days of falling temperatures and decreasing daylight, I find consolation in looking at beautiful autumn landscapes and brightly colored autumn leaves.

the Long Plantation path in autumn
The Long Plantation (1) Superb autumn colours, with just a hint of sunlight filtering through the canopy, made me glad that I chose this route. The path is very narrow in places, this being one of the wider points. View in the direction in which I was heading; from Chipstead, towards Fanny’s Farm Shop.
