Dawn of a new season

Some photos are too good to keep to the 365daysofbiking blog, and this is one of them. Not so much the quality of the image, but what it encapsulates.

Yes, summer is passed, but this new autumn thing… It could work…

Autumn sunrise, viewed from Chester Road, Sandhills. I'm ready now, bring it on. 6.17am, Tuesday, 30th August 2011.
