On Saturday we took a late afternoon walk in Biddulph Grange Country Park, which is only about a 20 minute drive from where we live. We all enjoyed enjoyed the autumn colours and kicking up the thick piles of leaves as we walked through the woods. We took a thermos for tea, juice for the Podlings and some biscuits and enjoyed a mini-picnic by the small lake at dusk. It was getting quite dark by the time we started back for the car and the fog that descended lent a strange other-worldly quality to the woods that was quite beautiful.
Oh, it's times like this that I wish I had a manual-focus camera (not that I would know how to use it I suppose!)
