What a nice simple idea to follow all the esoteric subjects we've had lately. And sure to produce some wonderful entries.....

Um...  Had a lttle try now. Maybe it's more of a challenge than I initially thought. Here it's still a little early in the season for the spectacular tree colours. An interesting exercise nevertheless.

2 problems for me.
1. Not quite autumn here in Leeds
2. Been laid up with a nasty virus since Thursday that has lost me 7lbs but left me feeling pretty washed out and exacerbated an old balance problem so not allowed out to play.
Got a few woodland shots on Thursday I will have to "warm up" maybe unless we get any colour in the garden shrubs tomorrow.

Sorry to hear you've not been well Paul - hope you're back to full cheekiness very soon.

Like you, I've not got much in the way of traditional autumn colours about the place, so I went for these flowers just outside the airport perimeter and in front of a field of maize. There may have been some PP work done . .

Thanks H. Picking up now a bit. My wife thinks I am probably well enough to go to a mate`s little do and miss watching Stoke v Newcastle live on the TV but I`m not so sure  ;)

Anyway still no shooting so luckily I got this on Thursday when out in the woods to keep up the entry numbers. It`s a warmed up HDR of 5 images

I took a snap of brambles (blackberries) and rosehips, and added it to my gallery just in case. But I didn't really want to use it for the comp, and now Del has posted a much better one anyway.

For the first time in ages I actually had a wander round the garden this morning. I didn't think there'd be so much to photograph as Autumn hasn't really set in here yet, but I was surprised. I've loaded a couple of snaps into my gallery, but decided to go with this one for the comp



It made a really nice change from dogs  :legit:
