After the Storms…….


Allestree Lake

A weekend of heavy rains and high winds, not quite as sever as predicted in our small corner of the world, but still bad enough to drive us indoors.

A harsh low early morning sun provided a brief and welcome bright spell to the day. The rain and winds had washed clean and swept aside a good deal of the leaf litter around the lake whilst choosing to ignore the dead branches.

Surprisingly we are still left  with some colourful leaf colour to remind us that it is still autumn….not bad for mid November.
