It's these days that I take the opportunity to get out early when the weather looks hopeful.
It was one of these days that took me out on a local walk from my village of Newick through the woods, along the river to Sheffield park.
The gardens at Sheffield park are wonderful but very formal, it's the surrounding parkland that inspires me the most.
On this particular day I headed out before sunrise .
Arriving at the river's edge the early morning mist was highlighted by the rising sun as it shone on the Autumn colours of the trees along the river bank.
