I am 100% a warm weather person… I don´t like to be cold and more than 4 days of consecutive rain is guaranteed to drive me completely crazy. But having said that, I really like autumn and I think, photographically speaking, it might just be my favourite time of year. The jury´s still out on that one, because summer is pretty awesome, but there´s just something about the colours and the light of autumn…
In November last year we visited the Herdade do Freixo do Meio for their annual “Encontro do Outono” or Autumn Meet-up. The Herdade is an organic farm in the Alentejo and this autumn event was focused on sharing their farming principles (permaculture, organic agriculture etc) via a series of small workshops and demonstrations held though-out the day as well as selling a variety of local organic produce… we bought some of the most delicious cheese ever from Quinta Anema.
They also have a Spring event, check their website for more info.
Lovely images as always Kerry……re: the four days of rain, it could be worse, you could be back in the UK…..Somerset has been underwater for the past 6 weeks or so.
Fantastic photos Murray!! Love them, do you sell prints?
