Tree lights
A string of lights, a pair of street lamps and some traffic lights, all in one photo (hence, 'tree lights' - sorry for the pun!).

The trees are just beginning to turn a lovely golden colour.

Grasmere Glory

Grasmere Glory
Just a tease of blue sky through the cloud over Grasmere. The colours are just beginning to turn autumnal. By the way, the dot in the middle of the lake is a swimmer!
