Colour and Light

Another post with a selection of photographs from one of the inspiring moments on my morning walks. This from earlier in the week on Tuesday morning when the light was amazing, with a very clear blue sky and sun beams slanting through the trees or catching the topmost leaves and highlighting the amazing colours.  There were some lovely silhouettes of trees against the light and mysterious moments.

 

First Signs

Grape vine Amelanchier

The first signs of autumn are here. Leaves starting to turn, end of the blackberries, a cool crisp chill in the air first thing in the  morning, misty days like today.  I love the autumn colour, although its also tinged with a touch of wistfulness  for me as well.  The close of the summer, no more endlessly hot, bright days for a few months.   I always think that the glorious colours of autumn are natures last gasp of majesty before everything goes to sleep for the winter months. So, I’ve been capturing some of the early signs on my morning walks. The hawthorn, the rose hips, teasels, grasses and flowers going to seed and I’m beginning to think about autumn colour – burnt sienna, cadmium red, alizarin crimson, indigo and purple.
