With the changing of the season we also experience the falling back of the clocks, so that darkness descends so much earlier as we creep slowly into winter. However, coming home in the darkness or taking a meander in the woods can be such a wonderful experience at this time of year. Those nights when the moon shines brightly overhead and the trees cast shadows across my pathway or the clear night skies in the countryside in which I live, where the lack of light pollution can make my appreciation of the star filled sky so much easier to enjoy.
Not quite darkness, but an early morning trip into Battle found the rising autumn sun creating these wonderful silhouettes of the abbey.
Which report on exploring the darkness could fail to include at least one moon shot! My DSLR created an odd reflection of the moon.
And to round off 'exploring the darkness' a sneaky treat of dark delight in the form of some yummy Swiss chocolate! Enjoy!
