Autumn colours

Autumn is a time for spectacular colours, the oranges, reds and yellows suddenly burst through just as the countryside seems to be getting dull and grey.

At the end of a dark and damp afternoon I went for a walk in to my local woods. I was accompanied by the constant rattling call of the newly arrived flocks of Fieldfares.

I’m quite pleased with how using a flash brought out the colours of the fungi and fallen leaves.




As the sun was setting a large flock of Starlings flew over, probably off to join the murmuration at Otmoor.

    Nice photos!
    I especially liked the last one of the fungi.
    I was in the woods after school today and tried using the flash on the fungi, it worked really well!


  2. Great fall collection, Alex. I, too, liked the closeups of the fungi. The water drops on the red fruit and the last golden leaf scene are quite nice, too.
