For a while now I have claimed that autumn was here – well now there is no mistaking the slowly changing season – rain is definitely stopping play. I realise talking about rain might be seen as being in bad taste with all that is happening in south Asia at the moment. Whilst much of the western media seems to think that the flood story is in south Texas the real disaster is around the bay of Bengal where at least 41 million people have been effected. So far there have been figures of over 1000 people dead but this is bound to increase. I am sure that the problems and hardship in south Texas are heart breaking but at least they are have the richest nation to support them. I suspect this is not the base in south Asia.
Going back to my autumn theme these are two images of the same tree just over a month apart. I know we can argue about how I have made each image but it does prove that the light is changing towards the weaker sun of autumn…then of course winter is coming.
