My Sunday Photo – September 3rd, 2017.

How is it September already? The trees are already changing colour here, which seems much earlier than the last few years. If that wasn’t enough of a sign of the changing seasons, the nights are also pulling in and, once again, I’m getting to see some sunrises. Of course, the biggest sign that summer is over is that Freya starts school this week *cry*. I’m completely burying my head in the sand about that and instead looking back over our holiday photos – and wishing for another week or two.

Today’s My Sunday Photo is from an early evening visit to my of my favourite beaches, Holkham. It’s hard to really describe it but I feel exhilarated when I’m there. I don’t know whether its the big sky, the endless sand or the fact its bordered by a forest but it’s such a special place (it’s featured in lots of films, including the Oscar-winning Shakespeare In Love).

I was thrilled to see horses enjoying the gentle surf when we arrived. We walked a long way to get closer but it was worth it, especially when one of the riders kindly stopped and let us meet the gorgeous Red, who is apparently a big fan of children. The feeling was mutual and Freya still talks about him.

To see what other people have captured this week, please click on the camera below.

I also have another really interesting Behind The Book post for you tomorrow so please pop back.

  1. Hi Tara, I love the sense of space on an empty beach. It is exhilarating. Red looks like a gentle soul and it was nice that the rider didn’t mind stopping for Freya to pet him, they probably don’t even realise how much it made her day.

  2. What gorgeous photos!
    Good luck to you both for Freya starting school! It’s a big step, but I’m sure you will both be fine.
    I noticed the leaves were turning when we got home from holiday two weeks ago – and I remember them turning when we got home at the exact same time last year! I’ve taken a few photos of sunrise this week as it seems to coincide nicely with when I get up!

  3. A couple of great images here, my fave being the one of the horse running along the beach. Just very….Black Beauty! And what a wonderfully empty stretch of sand Tara. #MySundayPhoto

  4. Red is such a beautiful horse and I love the photo of Freya stroking him. Gorgeous photos. Autumn is definitely on the way. The start of September always makes me feel a little sad at the thought of summer being over for another year.
