Autumn is a gorgeous time of year here because the light is so wonderful. Now that the sun is no longer high in the sky, the illumination of the land and sea scapes is extraordinarily special. And the quiet villages and roads are even more peaceful.
Of course it is a bit brisk, but I hold to the concept that there is no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes for it. And all one really needs is a good windproof jacket!
And then one can go to and enjoy sights like this. (I took this picture with my iPhone from Heddle Hill, just above Finstown and it's a great spot for a picnic.)
The light does special things to water as well. Here is a pic taken five steps from the Creel.
I like to take photos and am fond of clichés - so I'll say I find them to be worth a thousand words.
