Autumn Colours in Anagach Woods
Having revelled in the autumn colours in the great forests of the High Sierra where the aspens glowed in the bright sunshine I've been delighted to find the autumn colours in our woods just as beautiful and intense. In Anagach Woods in Grantown-on-Spey the beeches are startlingly bright. On a day of low cloud, rain showers and just the occasional shaft of sunshine they lit up the landscape.
The River Spey was full with rain and roaring along under the steel grey sky with the outline of the Cromdale Hills hazily visible in the distance. Only the birches lining the banks gave colour to the scene and we soon headed back to the shelter of the woods.
