The angle of the sun is lower now. Light pours inside illuminating the interior of the cottage in a way that always brings an ache to my heart. The old walls, beams and mullioned windows are never so beautiful as they are at this time of the year. I've been experimenting with a variety of camera settings in an effort to capture the atmosphere. Please click on the images to view in a larger size.

These days feel like stolen time, nearly everyone has left and soon, we too, will retreat to thicker walls.


  1. Hello Carol:
    What an absolutely beautiful cottage. These interior shots are so very warm, atmospheric and inviting. We really do hope that you will continue to enjoy these last, 'stolen' days before you leave for another year.

    1. Hello Jane and Lance ~ Thank you for your kind words on a place I dearly love. Our idyllic light has vanished and lashing rain has taken its place with a cold wind coming off the water. A skunk has made its winter home under the house perfuming everything! I will finally be ready to leave in a few day's time!

  2. lovely -especially the 3rd one down looking into the dining room(?). Remind me of the natural lighting seen in World of Interiors.

    1. Hello Stefan! I hope you've had a great summer!

      Many thanks, especially for mentioning the lighting which is tricky inside this old house with its dark walls and hundreds upon hundreds of windows.
