Autumn setting in

 

A month ago, everything round here was golden. Really. This was just around the corner from my house

 

Then this happened

The harvest was late in this year because it was so wet. For weeks combine harvesters have been everywhere, clogging up the roads in morning rush hour (if such a thing exists here), raising enormous clouds of dust. However late you drove home there would be headlights in the fields as every dry hour was pressed into service. 

 

The stubble faded from deep coppery gold to buff, and now they are being ploughed back to brown and grey.
