The overnight mist had cleared and paved the way for a gentle awakening to the day. The remnants of the cool moisture, which hung in the air, could be felt with every breath. As dawn approached, absolute calmness enveloped the scene, with the only sound being that of roaring stags on the hillside as they prepared themselves of another day of rutting. The Autumnal trees, sensing this calmness, didn't seem to be in any hurry to lead the eye towards the distant mountains.
