AUTUMN (or Fall, if you prefer!)

 

Carmi's Photographic Challenge this week is Fall – or as I know it, Autumn!   Its a wee bit early for Autumn colours here, but I went out with my camera very early, while the sun was still low, and found what I could in the Park.

I did think there were already a lot of leaves fallen – mostly brown and crispy.   I wonder if the trees have suffered from our exceedingly wet summer?

 

There was a heavy dew and the grass and leaves were soaking wet.

But it didn’t stop them looking attractive!

 

Early sun on a sycamore

 

The Horse Chestnut has dropped a large part of its leaves already

 

And the Beech is only just starting to turn colour

 

Looking up through the branches of the Chinese Rowan tree in our garden.   The leaves turn dark pink/red on top, and yellow underneath

Lovely trees - I love the leaves on the grass - and long shadows in the Horse Chestnut pic.

Happy sigh...these are lovely! I know it's always a little sad to see the leaves fall. But looking forward to next year is also not a bad frame of mind. Here's to constant change and renewal.

The sycamores on either side of my garden have not changed yet but the number of seeds that they have dropped is telling me it won't be long. Good shots, Gilly

That is a perfect fall leaf, with dew drops. Nice shots.
