I had to defrost my car for the first time this season – a clear sign that those nights are getting cold. Another thing that was clear today was the light; clean and clear, and cold and crisp. It was enchanting. Golden, early morning sun filtered through leaves on the turn, and a light layer of mist lay over the fields. Altogether enchanting and beautiful.

Mind you, I should really have fetched out my gloves. My hands were frozen by the time I arrived at work!
