Created with Nokia Smart Cam

I haven’t been posting lately, life gets in the way sometimes, so the camera has been pretty much mothballed. This shot, of an early morning start to a hike in Derbyshire’s Peak District three weeks ago, was taken with my phone camera. It turned out far better than I had expected it to. The fog and mist, which was very widespread, soon melted away to leave a clear, crisp autumn day, perfect for a walk.



It’s a sure sign of autumn when the maples in our garden start to change colour, and although they were not as spectacular this year as they have been previously – losing their leaves quickly in the high winds – this one looked rather good when it was in mid-change from green to red.
