Last weekend I ventured south to a place called Ilam Park, a 158 acre park located on both banks of the River Manifold and run by The National Trust. I wanted to have myself a wander; just me, my hiking boots, and my camera.
Autumn in England is a lot different than autumn in Minnesota. For starters, in Minnesota the colors range from deep greens, to bright yellows, and awe-inspiring oranges and reds. Here in England, you can find those same colors but not with as much ease as one would think. Autumn here is a bit warmer, a bit more soggy, and a lot more green…and grey. That said, somehow the warm, soggy, grey weather produces some of the most incredibly rich and beautiful colors I’ve seen in a long time.
What’s it like in your part of the world? Have you gone out exploring lately? Have you shared your bit of heaven with anyone? If you’ve answered no to either of those last two questions, might I suggest you have yourself a wander; just you, your hiking boots, and your camera? Go on, I dare you.
