I wanted to mark the Autumnal Equinox with an appropriate image but struggled to find an outdoors image which was just right. Although there were signs of Autumn in August and early September: changing light levels; chilly winds; and grey skies, Summer seems to have suddenly made a return.
Temperatures are holding up very well – the Met Office is predicting temps in the mid 70s for the weekend – and we haven’t had any frosts as yet in Southern England. Therefore, vegetation is staying pretty green overall.
I’ve chosen instead, an indoors image which continues one of my Spring and Summer themes: cereal crops. I took this photograph whilst at the Japanese-style gardens last month. Within the grounds were a couple of barns, one of which had been completely renovated by Master Craftsmen. I liked the way this hayloft had been illuminated by soft golden lighting and how the ears of wheat can be seen.
