(Above: the promenade, Grange-over-Sands)

I find the autumn has distinct stages, and that these are subtly different on the coast.

I suppose the adjacent presence of the sea – with its residual warmth from the summer – has a modifying effect on the foliage of the trees, but this may be fanciful on my part.

Either way, as colour fades, the intensity of shadows becomes more important; knowing the light as well as the colour is draining from the landscape as we head down to the winter solstice.
