Autumn in Piemonte No. 5

Eight degrees at 8:30am and glitteringly sunny. But there's something in the air. People are feeling colder for some reason, judging by the number of people who told me this morning how very cold it is (though it's not). Perhaps it's the snow crowning the peaks all around making people feel shivery...



Slick, wet leaves and prickly chestnut husks on the sentiero up to Carmine.
A booby-trap for bambini.

Its just the same here with the fallen leaves but no chestnuts. Dont think much of these dark and rainy days, but no frost.

Interesting perspective on this shot. I like it. :)

I thought I'd give you B's perspective of the hill in autumn...!

If there are any slick leaves, I can find them and slip every time. I'm just graceful like that.

Beautiful. Been busy so haven't been visiting around as much. Glad to be able to pop in. As always, great picture.

The photo is gorgeous. Did you take it? It feels smooth and soft.

That path does look booby-trapish even for me. Looks like a good rake is in order.
Who is the official raker.

I'm afraid that title goes to yours truly - at least I was the only person whose rake stirred last year. I look forward to a little bit of soothing raking as soon as I get a moment!
