Making the most of the sunny autumn weather today, I went for a stroll along the Mawddach trail in Dolgellau. Crossing over the bridge, I was lucky enough to spot a heron sitting in a tree, though I couldn't get a close up with my phone camera, sadly. It sat there for quite a while - on the biggish branch over the river - maybe soaking up the sun in between spotting for fish!
I really do love this time of year, when the heat and hurry of the summer is over and the bustle of Christmas yet to come. Everything around seems to be taking a rest and enjoying a period of calm, not least Mother Nature.
It was a lovely crisp, clear afternoon and the colours of the trees was stunning. In a month or two, their branches will all be bare and the sky not always so blue, but for now the landscape truly is a sight to behold.
