August Flicks

 

The Summer Holidays have been wet and dreary. I was glad for the rain, as everything had become so parched, and I was glad for the cooler weather as it really had been too hot, but my photos this month have not looked very summery.

We went to Avebury, a neolithic site of stone circles that even pre-dates Stonehenge. The site attracts a wonderfully eclectic mix of people, and evidence of Pagan celebrations can be found adorning some of the more beautiful trees.

Silbury Hill a little way on from the stones. Originally, thought to be a burial mound, nothing was found inside when it was excavated.

Back home we’ve spent our evenings walking in search of wildlife, peering through the gloom for hours.

The cooler tones of this August have been beautiful in a way; the rain makes me look ahead to Autumn.
