Hyde Park in Autumn

Hyde Park is extremely beautiful all year round, but especially so in the Autumn, when everything glows red and yellow in the sunshine. And boy has London had some serious Autumn sunshine! Each time the sun has been out, I've tried my utmost best to try and make it outside. These days don't come around often at this time of the year, so every morning I open the curtains and the sun pours in, I smile :) We're being truly blessed with beautiful sunny mornings. It's still freezing cold, and by that I mean somewhere between 6 and 10 degrees Celsius, more or less, but having the sun out with clear skies and no rain is a reason to go outside and enjoy the sun. Even if you have to do it in boots and gloves.

Back to Hyde Park - It's one of those parks where spending the whole day there, is not difficult at all. This park is huge! I never seem to even get close to covering the entire park in one visit, but I think spending the whole day will have to be done in the summer, without a doubt. It's just too cold at the moment.

I tried my best to capture the glory that is Hyde Park in the Autumn, but I doubt I even came close. These shots were taken over two seperate days.

Coffee dates and The Liberty of Norton Folgate

Being able to meet my husband in the middle of the week for lunch or even just a coffee, with his busy schedule, is something I treasure. I do feel blessed to be able to do this sometimes. 

On Monday he took me to The Liberty of Norton Folgate, which is very close to his workplace, for coffee. The coffee is really very good, and would highly recommend. It's a long narrow coffee shop, but lots of light, thanks to the floor to ceiling windows, making this perfect for photography of course and catching "that light".

I also quite enjoy that they have coffee plants growing on each table. A nice touch.

Streets of London: Millennium Bridge

Or as I like to call it, the "Harry Potter" bridge.

Just a few shots I took the other day while walking over the bridge. Even though it looks quite sunny, it was actually only 8 degrees that day.. so pretty chilly!
