Guess the season...

Five simple shots gleaned from an hour or so out and about. What's interesting about them, however, is that if you look at the desiccated, russet oak leaves and the almost complete absence of foliage or new growth I reckon these could be taken as having been captured in late September or early October. In fact, they were all taken this afternoon – the day after the spring equinox. We can only hope that this weekend's predicted heavy snow in Norfolk will be winter's last throes and the seasons get back into kilter quickly. It's been a long, long wait for sunshine and vibrant colours.

  1. You are right about that Tim, the poor birds look fed up with it too. I hope you don't get hit too hard over there.
