End of Summer
Closing up the cabin for winter. It was already the end of August and the fjord was still as wine in a glass. Above us the sky was a wash of pale blue unblemished by cloud apart for a few white puffs on the horizon.
The Rowan berries were the colour of sensuality.

Heading for home, back to our lives, our friends, our cherished illusions.
