Autumn in Piemonte No. 2

A magnificent day! We started with 7° at 8:30 and by 12:30, the temperature had soared to 26°. Dry. Azure skies. Changing colours all around.



First snowfall on the nearest of the Swiss Alps, 14th October.
Seen from Cannobio

The first snow quickly melted away in the sunshine. But today, any peak worth its salt round about is again tipped white.

This photo is pure delight! Better get the fires roaring - might be a cold winter...

Absolutely!
I felt the same way today.

Rain, rain, rain and more rain forecast for us on Atlantic gales. Still, it strips the leaves off the trees. More work sweeping them up.

I think you have your Christmas card shot right there. Plenty of space for Yuletide greetings and a bit of snow and some greenery...

Louise said...

Hi Woodman -- rain, rain, rain. Tee-dee-us! :-(

Louise said...
