A very slow start after being up until well past midnight watching Lewis Hamilton clinch the F1 world championship. Clickychick went into town shopping and I sent a few emails.
After lunch CC suggested having a look at Rutter Falls in the hope of getting some autumn colour. It was a bright sunny afternoon, but the snag was the sun was shining directly towards us. Fortunately the trees blocked the sun. I had made a discovery about my poorly sick DSLR. If I changed then lens or even took the lens off and put it back it solved the problem.
The river had very little water in which is a good thing as I am having to go back tomorrow to retrieve (or try to) the quick release plate from my tripod. Fumble fingers dropped it off the foot bridge. I can clearly see it but I suspect it will be over welly depth. I will be taking my recovery magnet used on out boat trips.
We rounded a pleasant afternoon off with a trip to Orton and coffee in the "Chocolate factory".
