There's something about this time of year though that makes it feel special. The chilly mornings are mixed with dampness in the air and a hint of the winter to come, but when it's not raining there is a peaceful 'waiting' moment; a time of year when nature prepares itself. The colours of autumn are all around us: reds, oranges, burnt browns and occasional hints of green. Berries adorn nearly every tree you look at and contrast with the blue or even grey skies above.
I was able to see some of my photographer friends photos this week; ones she took at Ravenscar. I wanted to show you a couple of the ones she took of my favourite area of Yorkshire - the beach at Stoope Beck, and the mermaids tables at the foot of Ravenscar. In the picture at the bottom of the 600ft cliffs (which we climbed down!) you can see how large the mermaids tables are - it's always a surprise when people see the size of them!
