We've been to the Spider Park on several evenings lately, and every
time I wish I that I'd taken a camera: the wide, flat open space, up near
Lodge Moor at one of the highest points around Sheffield, the recent clear
with only wisps of clouds, the incredible evening light. Unfortunately, today
was the day that Autumn undeniably arrived - although it was beautifully sunny,
there was a sharp chill edge to it, and the sun seemed to set about 30 minutes
earlier than last week. We got to the park with about thirty seconds to spare
before most of the sunlight was obscured by trees, and after less than ten
minutes there we were too cold to hang about. The photos weren't as good as
they would have been if I'd taken my camera a week earlier (there's always
next summer...), but I did manage a few decent snaps.
