Then all of a sudden....

"Then all of a sudden, autumn collapsed into winter!" - Anon

This was the scene approaching Mintlaw village earlier this evening just moments before the sky became really dark and the heavens opened to give us the first hail stones of the new season. Seems like winter has come early this year replacing the gorgeous, warm autumnal colours for the cooler tones and shades of winter. Definitely time to be thinking about digging out the winter woolies, coats and boots!
