Walking in one of my favourite spots at the weekend I was captivated by how seasonal changes affect an environment.  How the light and colours of Autumn transform a woodland into a cozy warm cavern.  The curves of trees envelop the clearings creating natural apitheates, ripe for staging performances, with acoustics to match, amplifying the cracking of twigs, falling leaves, rippling brook or echo of a cooing bird.
