Life has been a wee bit busy this summer. Our daughter gave birth to twins (boy and girl) at the end of July and we’ve been involved helping with them and our older grandson since then. Before that, we had decided to move to Edinburgh to be closer to family and, maybe unwisely given that we are no longer spring chickens, bought a house that needs complete renovation. So the summer has been spent working on a house, trying (with no success) to sell a house and helping look after babies and a two-year old. There has been no time at all for the outdoors and I haven’t taken any photos, apart from baby photos, for three months.
But now we have a short break and last Friday I managed to get out for a walk in the woods. Although I love being on the hills, for short walks I really like the variety that you get from forest walks. The autumn colours haven’t started yet but there’s a definite ‘end of summer’ feeling to the forest. I’ve tried to capture this in these images.
