Autumn Pheonix

We had another fantastic autumn day in the West of Ireland with icy blue skies and the sun burnishing the dying leaves copper and gold.

I took advantage of the good weather to take lots of photographs, because at this time of the year who knows what tomorrow will bring?

Tonight, it is frosty with a dollop of fat moon in the sky. The spirit of Halloween is very much present.

This evening, instead of a photograph, here’s artwork inspired by the woods and the weather.

I’ll expect I’ll have my first hot port* of the season soon. That is when I know winter has really arrived.

* Hot Port: a measure of port, hot water, a slice of lemon and cloves. Add sugar if you like it sweet.
