Autumn in the chestnut forest

Just before I left Italy in early November I drove up to Montefegatesi hoping to see some autumn colour in the forest just outside the village. I was a bit early, but I could see the changes.

It is always good to stop at the little church beside the road on the way down the mountain.

By now the leaves will probably be gone and the scene will be wintery. That is wonderful too.

A change in the weather

We have had a dramatic change in the weather. The lovely sunny days gave way to torrential rain, howling wind, thunder and lightning in the last couple of days.

The river has turned brown and is moving quickly.
