We went out to some local woods this afternoon in search of more Autumn colour. On the way, we passed this scene, which was much more attractive than the woods we were heading for, so we walked back so that I could take a photograph. It might have been better if there had been a little bit of hazy sunlight to highlight the leaves even more, but that might have to wait for another day.
I think I have found the solution to my missing cap on the camera's mode dial. A quick bit of research on the internet thingy revealed that I am far from the first to experience this problem. I have managed to order a new cap (about £8 delivered tomorrow - I could have got it a couple of pounds cheaper from China but it would have taken a couple of weeks). I just need a bit of superglue to stick it in place.
