I thought I'd share some photos I took this past week while the weather was glorious.
First up a couple of shots in my garden where autumn colours have definitely arrived:
The blueberry bush all red now complete with a very welcome visitor.
My former white hydrangea now in very Prima-like shades.
Then I took off for a stroll round the park - it was seriously hot, but an interesting combination of summer heat and autumnal smells and colours and leaves.
It took a lot of walking, but I finally found a leaf that wasn't green or brown!
The light was just lovely through the trees, there were crunchy leaves everywhere.
All the way to the bandstand.
I experimented a bit with the AF mode to try and get the leaves on the ground in focus and the rest blurred, really like how this one turned out, just a shame the leaves aren't more interesting leaves. Can't have everything! ;o)
This is what they looked like from a distance, so it shows things can look a lot more interesting when you shoot from ground level.
I did have a go at trying to capture the sun coming through the leaves but it was a bit hit and miss.
And finally as I was just nearing the end of my stroll, a conker fell from the tree in front of me and the spiky shell broke open to reveal a shiny new conker. Alas didn't catch it in a photo, but I picked up the conker and took a photo of what was around. Yet another pretty leaf. LOL
Now I'm just hoping the promised sunshine returns this afternoon. It's a bit cooler this morning with the rain, but I would still like the sun to stick around a bit longer!
