Remembering Autumn...

I took many photos last autumn, only a few of which I looked at or published.  I had in mind those dark days after Christmas was over - I thought I'd sort through them then and enjoy the wonderful autumn colours again.  Well, it looks like that time has arrived!   I came across these scenes wandering through deep woodland in the English Peak District.  In fact, I wandered off piste, as I often do without intending to, and found myself with no way forward or back!  There were no paths to be seen, it was perfectly still and silent, and I wondered who the last person to have visited this secret place might have been, and when it was.  It did occur to me that I had no idea of the direction I now needed to take to get back to civilisation, but hey, golden sunlight was breaking through the dense canopy, creating the effect of a natural cathedral, I had my camera, and I wasn't about to complain...
