It’s two weeks since the autumn equinox finally swept away the summer. We feel the pull into winter with the increasingly late arrival of the sun each morning, and the disappointing shift of sunset ever earlier in the day. Less noticeable is the ever more shallow arc of the sun across the sky, meaning its rays carry less solar and heat energy compared to summer. This autumn equinox is often accompanied by stormy weather – and this year is no exception. We’ve had a good few days of high winds, huge seas and lots of rain.
