As a child, I often fell asleep to the sounds of my mother playing a Rustle of Spring* on the piano. It was lovely and I still remember it with great pleasure.
Cycling home from work one afternoon, the sun was still warm and the golden light played on the colours in the deciduous trees as I passed by. It struck me then that I was experiencing a different sort of loveliness – the Rustle of Autumn rather than the Rustle of Spring! (Realistically, the term rustle is far more suited to Autumn than Spring anyway, when you think about it 🙂 )
The amazing contrast between the green and red foliage in the late afternoon was a delight. When Ailsa posted a travel theme of “contrast“; this seemed the perfect reply!
I am no musician, so for your enjoyment, here is my photographic rendition of a Rustle of Autumn.
(And I could not help but to put a photo of my bike in too!)
*The Rustle of Spring is a musical piece for the piano written by a Norwegian composer Christian Sinding in 1896 (Source: wikipedia)
