default Autumn colour

Post by Chilli-head on 18th November 2011, 11:54 am

I've been very much enjoying afternoon walks in the park here, the autumn colours seem very good this year, but particularly special have been the Ginko Biloba, or Maidenhair trees. One big old tree, standing amongst a carpet of bright yellow fallen leaves on the fresh green of the grass, seen in the low afternoon sun was a beautiful sight. I missed the best of this one by the time i found my camera:

But a smaller tree still has more leaves:

Be sure to take some time to get out and enjoy whilst it lasts !

Gorgeous. It's one of the good things about having to walk the dog everyday. I agree that the autumn colours have been beautiful this year, though they seemed to start early here, probably because it's been so dry. I don't know if it is to do with the way clouds filter light, but the yellows always seem to stand out more than other colours when it is dull and cloudy. Everything looks stunning in the sun, but even when it goes in, the yellows continue to hum quietly to themselves.

wow that looks incredible.

I so do miss Autumn with those beautiful sights. Officially they say we hv Autumn where i live but we don't hv deciduous trees so the only difference is it gets slightly cooler at night
