I never liked autumn because of the approaching times of darkness and cold. But this year is different, I am starting to like autumn, it´s the time to harvest the fruits of nature.  
On this picture are some Crabapples,  fruits from the Sloe, Sweet Chestnut, Beech Seeds, Rowan, Blackberries, and Hawthorn berries.

Emptying The Dog In The Evening

It is early evening, but still enough light for a walk in direction of Highdown Hill.

Harbour Fun

The summer visitors are gone, benches and fences are being painted for the coming season, and the vehicles are wrapped and packed for winter. The Harbour Fun in Littlehampton was empty and silent on this day :)

Angmering - The Roman Villa

Since watching Time Team, my eyes are searching the ground when walking over the fields in Sussex. So it didn´t take a long until I found a bit of clay,  a very orange coloured one, with inclusions and patches of different coloured material. I could even see that it had been worked by man and not by machine. Somebody had soften the edge of a corner with a finger or the thumb.

Wheel Of Life, Pt4 Stonehenge

I am getting quite addicted to the diggings of the Time Team :)
This documentary about Stonehenge is about the historical landscape where Stonehenge is built. It shows the connection between the Durrington Walls/ Woodhenge (which in my eyes appears to be the symbol for life) and Stonehenge (which after the archaeological resurches seems to be more a symbol for death). The connection between these spiritual places is the nearby River Avon.
At least I must add that I truly believe in the importance of the winter solstice for those who has been celebrating there. Dark long nights opens the human mind for insights and spirituality, and it is the time for rebirth of life, the wheel of life keeps on turning.

Here you can use an interactiv panoramic view of Stonehenge.

P.S. Only few minutes after making this post I heard the latest news about the landscape surrounding Stonehenge.  Read about the finds here.

South Downs Way

The 160 Km long South Downs Way National Trail follows the old routes and droveways along the chalk escarpment and ridges of the South Downs. The sea is nearby and can be seen from parts of the trail. Here is a map with the heights of the route.
Unfortunately the weather was cloudy and rainy as I went, but it didn´t stop us breaking up with the dog for a three days walk with two nights of wild camping :)
