Low Sun - Autumn is here

The days are rapidly getting shorter - as we head for Michaelmas, when there's 12 hours of light and 12 hours of dark ... then on towards the time of the year with the shortest days at Christmas. Goodness - I'm talking "Christmas" already.

Buzzard in flightThis afternoon, I took a short walk in the fields behind our home (something I'm prone to do far more often now that we have a dog, and one who understands the word "Walkies" too!). And the sun is getting lower, earlier, leading to some spectacular photos. The buzzard (I'm told it's a buzzard) that nested in the trees on the field's edge this summer was soaring over the field, dramatically lit by the sun behind.


Automn CloverOnly a few weeks ago, it seems, the grass crop in the field was turned into hay, but already there's a good new crop of clover and thistles, and the odd confused buttercup or two is flowering as well.


Melksham StationBoth Thursday and Friday of last week, I met visitors off the 19:11 arrival at Melksham - again very much in the low light, as we head to the time of year when it won't be possible to photograph a train in daylight there. Let's hope that with some movements we've seen in our campaign, and all the support we have that this will be the last winter with this depressing state of affairs. Come Lady Day in March, longer days will bring back light on the trains, and come May there's perhaps the best chance yet of a decent service.
