… towards autumn’s end.
I have to admit that I stole the title.
Tree and Leaf is one of J. R. R. Tolkien’s short stories (published together with his essential essay On Fairytales).
It is about a painter and his fate in a strict society – until he departs for the mountains on the horizon.
I always want a pocket camera but have been without since the shutter of my rather adequate Fuji XF1 broke for the second time five years ago – though a somewhat bulky Canon G12 has helped a bit. Now, finally, I fell for the temptation of a Sony RX100 VI as I happened to find a hardly used one at a very reasonable price.

The other day I woke up (with it) to a slightly foggy dawn – but the fog of the slight rain was already lifting as I came out.
Along the path towards the forest –
– coming to a glade where the wet ground is still enhancing colours.
Stones covered with lichen.
and more lichen.
A juniper tree guarding the path through the forest.
Next day’s afternoon the sun broke out chasing me outdoors…
The sun can also paint.
More leaves –
– and grass.
This path is dug out of a slope so roots and stones are laid bare, autumnally sprinkled.
The trees are still standing strong,
and a rock wall rises up the slope.
A last remnant of summer.[ All photos SOOC, two slightly cropped.]
