As far as the weather is concerned, I think this photo encapsulates late autumn in how the sunlight on the bank and along the bush tops gives an impression of weakening as the darker skies of winter draw near.
Still, if winter brings sufficient snow, then all will be forgiven :)
This view shows the top of the original North Military Road ("Military Hill") just as it meets the Outer Bridge of the "North Entrance" (immediately behind the viewer).
The North Entrance is flanked to the east (right) by the Drop Redoubt, and to the west (left) by the North Centre Bastion ("Dead Man's Island").
They are just three parts of an extensive Napoleonic and Victorian defense system embedded into the Western Heights and are now owned by English Heritage.
I made a North Entrance Video and a North Centre Bastion Video earlier in the year (2009).
The Guardian of the Steps tree is on the other side of a bank to the left of where the above photo was taken from.
The Grey Squirrel, Glowing Tree, and Piggy Steps photos were also taken on Military Hill, but click on the North Military Road tag to see all photos of this location.
