Yesterday, on a lovely, sunny day, I drove along a country lane from Headley towards Leatherhead and saw this amazing display of Autumn colours. Today I was determined to have another look and so I took a driver with me so I could capture the scenery. Well it turned out to be a foggy day, but with some help from Photoshop, the pictures taken through the car windscreen have captured some of the beauty.
By the time we had arrived at Polesden Lacey, our coffee-break destination, the fog was more obvious and the resulting pictures look better in black and white. And gosh, wasn’t it cold!

On a grey and windy day, some pictures from a morning visit to the National Trust’s Polesden Lacey. I’ve no idea who the gentleman in the hat is, but I liked his look. We took the tour, which was extremely interesting, before ambling through the rooms.
Off for another walk starting at Westhumble. In my hurry to get off the train I left my woolly hat on the seat – it’s an age thing. Later, I had to backtrack on the walk because the lane was blocked. It wasn’t looking a promising walk but it all worked out OK in the end. Continue reading “Hat lost, lane blocked!”

I’ve done several variations of this circular walk from Box Hill and Westhumble station to Polesden Lacey and I know the routes without the need for a map.
I was puzzled by the horse which has what looks like a blindfold. Maybe it’s just some form of see-through protection. As for the ‘bull in field’ – there was thankfully no bull.
A lovely, sunny day with lots of clouds. Just what you want when you’re accompanied by a camera.
