Reflections, soft light and other matters

The walk this morning was cool and soft. We seem to be on our way to autumn.

Before heading out I was attracted to the reflections of the soft morning light on the still surface of the water in the the old rusty fire pit - now really a huge (1m in diameter) avian font.

This little visual feast was followed up by the blue of the hydrangeas and the pumpkin flowers - the vines are starting to spread over everything as is their way each year.

Most of the flowers on the verges on my walk along Treehaven Way were reflecting the soft cool morning light.
