Amalfi in Hamburg.
I am sad that I did not take the time to photograph the hot oranges and reds of the autumn leaves, yet somehow I thought they would hang around longer. I should have been warned by Mr C's observation, 'it's a spectacle of death'.
I do have one photo from this short autumn which haunts me, the above. We took this right at the beginning of autumn on a truly sunny, but very windy day. It's Blankenese, the Amalfi of Hamburg, as we stagger back up the hill to our waiting chariot (car). The light had gone, but I loved seeing the far off rain advancing over the Elbe. And it was an exciting race against time to get home and snug before it caught us.
A happy 'grey' moment. Who'd have thought?
