Autumn…

for some reason this year I’ve got a ‘thing’ about Autumn. Maybe it’s because we’ve not had such a good summer and therefore I’m wanting to benefit from the Autumn sun and colours so bear with me on this one.

So let me tell you about the chappie on the left…yes he’s been made up with wood and doesn’t he remind you of the logo of Bertie Bassett on the packets of Bassett liquorice Allsorts sweets whether that was the intention or not I’ve no idea but I will see if I can find out more about him next time I visit the gardens.

Yes I’ve been off to Hyde Hall yet again but it really is a place I can visit time after time as the gardens are continually changing as time moves through the seasons. Anyway I went all on my own last week and spent about 5 hours wondering around with my camera and Macro lens. It was such a beautiful clear day with a blue sky, very warm sunshine and not too many people there as it was midweek.

So here are a some of the photo’s taken with the 100mm macro lens which I must admit to using for all types of shots and then I decided to use my new lens as I wanted to catch some colours beginning to appear on the trees but I hope the next time I go back they will be more advanced than this

Finally I’ll leave you with my own little bit of Autum in our garden. Many years ago I was fortunate to study Bonsai and this Beech tree I started 21years ago this November and as you will see it now a fully grown (bonsai) tree and yes it’s leaves are also changing and they will of course all drop and the tree will go into it’s winter mode!!

When I look at the photo’s I’ve posted they really do not do them justice in the small size so please do click on them to view them at a large image.

I hope you’re enjoying your season whether you are here in the Northern Hemisphere or where you’re beginning to welcome Spring in the Southern Hemisphere..

I’ll see you again soon, and take care.

  1. Well, Bev, I’ve been clicking into your website and not clicking the link to your blog! So what a nice visit to see all the great photos you have been taking and posting. I am really impressed by your snazzy camera equipment! What fun it must be to try out those lenses. I struggle with my little Canon S5 and would love to be able to get better shots. When I do get good DOF, it’s totally by accident as I can’t seem to get it to focus where I want!

    Thanks for all your visits and encouraging comments.

  2. Bev, — I chose you as a recipient of the “Blogging Friends Forever” award. See my latest post and pick it up to play along (or not, as you like).
