Today’s Picture: 19 Oct 20

Even on grey days, the autumn colours can brighten the scene.

As the season of mellow fruitfulness slowly builds here in the UK, our days will shorten, skies will more frequently grow grey, and rain will more often fall. So, when I can, I’ll include two pictures. Usually, one will be of the forest as it is that day, the other will show something reliably warm as a contrast. But, sometimes, the light might provide enough cheer to make the forest shot uplifting on its own, so I’ll either let it stand alone or accompany it with something from elsewhere as the contrasting shot.

On the road from Pompeii to Rome, a storm builds, turning the sky an unusual colour. This was taken in September 2018.

If you’re visiting this blog, please be generous to those who can’t escape their own four walls at present, and share this post widely with them on social media, so they can enjoy it. It will also reach more people and hopefully remind them what a wonderful place this world is. Perhaps that might help restore some love and respect for nature and slow down our destructive urge to ruin the environment. Thank you.

    1. And it really was that colour. We were travelling back on a coach, so I had to gather shots through the window as we sped along the motorway. Truly unusual event.

        1. When we returned to our hotel in Rome, Lynette, we quickly changed and went to our favourite travatoria for our evening meal. Just as we arrived, the waiters were moving the tables closer together, so they’d all be under the protective cover of the large canopy. Just in time to stop us all getting wet from the storm! That was a fascinating evening, as we were all so close together, there were many conversations between tables. We spoke with people from America, Germany, England and even Italy! A great night. And all because that storm followed us into the city.

            1. We generally like our own company, Lynette. We describe ourselves as antigregarious rather than antisocial. But the atmosphere of warm climates makes a difference; people in the Med are generally more open. And, of course, one of the reaasons we like to travel is to experience life in other countries with other people. We’ve learned, over the years, that people are pretty much the same wherever they come from, wherever they live.
