The change from summer to winter here in Lapland is pretty quick, the leaves have already started to turn and autumn is rapidly approaching.
The birch leaves turn a fantastic golden colour, they look great reflected in the river, less great on my bloody garden where it takes me days to rake them up.
The colour drains from the outside of the leaf and then up the stem before it drops off, here's a quick image from my garden last week at the first sign of change.
The river close to my house looks really nice too, even if it's a little overcast.
I'm heading North in a week or so, looking forward to catching the autumn colours in Abisko, hopefully I won't be too late!
