Changing seasons

For me, this weekend has felt like the first onset of autumn.  I’ve been on the Suffolk coast with family where the misty mornings over the Alde estuary, the sharpness of the cool morning air, and the first hesitant reddening of the leaves clearly announced the changing of the season.

One of the pleasurable things about living in a country with such contrasting seasons is that the same view can look so different as the seasons pass.  A magnificent view through trees in the autumn can become a dense wall of vibrant green in the spring; while an individual tree can shift from a jagged silhouette of twigs and branches against an autumn sky to a perfect round ball of lush leaves in the spring sunlight.

Today’s image shows just such a change in progress – taken in early spring, it shows the first leaves cautiously peeking out from the woody skeleton of a tree, heralding the arrival of another new season.
