autumn

I love autumn and autumn light and the whole notion of change. For me it is tarred by winter; I cannot tolerate the cold. I have always tried to capture autumn; the colours, the light and the change. Today I went to Richmond and wondered round some gardens there. We watched the friendly squirrels burying and digging up nuts, watching the fish swim under the ice and admiring the colours; yellow leaves and warm light. Brr so cold.
It is difficult to be in tune to the seasons in London, I feel so removed from nature. Having grown up (more or less) in the countryside, I was always aware or the seasons and the changes, here in London everything is concrete and grey!

This was on Hampstead Heath in the afternoon. The light was so beautiful, low and golden. Venus made a shadow on this tree, which appeared to be the only tree reflecting the light:
