I normally visit Collard Hill to photograph the large-blue butterflies in summer.  But today I returned to find out what the hill is like in autumn.

Collard Hill

We have been so lucky to have some beautiful Indian Summer evenings this week.  The sun is still setting late enough to give me the chance to take pictures on the way home from work.

The evening light really brought out the autumn colours.

The hill has long views across the Somerset Levels.  This tree framed the Redlands row of houses in the village of Compton Dundon.
