Well composed photo, but Autumn has come too soon for me.... no matter how spectacular the colours change.

Perfect! I love both old churchyards and Autumn so this lovely photo is just up my street!

Very nice photo Poet.
I love the bronze, which decks the most,
And how the green just hugs the post.
Though how the beech doth shed its load,
Upon the heads of bouncing toads.

Good one Dave, I used to take a short cut home down that path most nights / early morning after a pint or four, that's got to be the most slippery path in Standish, especially after rain.

Brilliant picture Poet. Walked down there hundreds of times. This footpath, like others in the churchyard has recently been levelled. it's a lot safer to walk down there now, especially when wet.

Just had a ride up to Standish and can confirm autumn as not arrived yet, the place is bathed in lovely September sunshine and somebody as shut the graveyard gate and all the weeds on yesterdays PAD have been removed

That's one of the best I've seen on here, excellent photo poet.
The leaves have only fallen on the grass, none on the path!

Thanks Poet. I hadn't previously been aware of your palindrome (you obviously knew its meaning) and its wizardry, though I've since found its meaning, simplified into dozens of pieces by another fellow with a grasp of magic - and how it then gave me a warm glow.

lovely photo.The path looks so clean its quite strange that not one leaf has fallen,as though its just been swept!!
