This is about as good as it get as far as autumn colours are concerned - we are not blessed with those amazing Autumn displays of the UK and elsewhere Smile Taken in front of our house.
I really did enjoy the mods on yesterday's image of the reed plumes - a great improvement indeed Smile Thanx too for every one who looked, commented and voted.
Have yourself a brilliant day !!
