The days are shortening as we slowly move into a time when the land will lie dormant.
Autumn brings its own beauty such as the soft, veiled light of misty mornings.
The Sugar Loaf Mountain emerges on such an autumnal morning.
The colours are still muted as the sun steadily rises. Its rays are weaker but still manage to catch the bright green blades of grass still growing as if making the most of any splash of colour.
The Sugar Loaf stands, a reassuring immutable sentinel still looking glorious day after day, season after season in the Wicklow countryside.
