The leaves are almost gone from the trees here in Northumberland. But the colours this autumn have been dazzling. Russet tones, yellows and golden hues that have made this season a delight. The beeches, birch and aspen have been particularly vibrant this year.
Saturday night brought a heavy frost to Morpeth and surrounding area, and the result on Sunday morning was a magical rain of leaves falling steadily and quietly in woodlands around the county. These photos were taken in and around Carisle Park, Morpeth.
