Leaves Turning RedAs we reach the end of September (that was a quick month, wasn’t it?) the changes associated with autumn are really happening fast – and they bring a beauty that is their own. I noticed this patch of red leaves and berries today. It reminded me that for sheer amazing harmony of colours, nature can never be beaten. To be a photographer is to be one who notices and learns; as I’ve said before, the journey is without end, and the views along the way are incredible.

Hawthorn LeavesIt seems that autumn is now well and truly here. This isn’t a bad thing for photography, though. The sunshine at a low angle, just before sunset, gives opportunities to capture the effects of transmitted light,where light is actually shining through a partially transparent object. Here is an example; I noticed this only this evening. What do you think…?

Class 31 Diesel LocoYesterday, I visited the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway again – the first time in a little while, because of various happenings claiming my time. Here, the Class 31 loco¬†Devon diesel Society has completed a day’s work between Wirksworth and Duffield – and now it’s bedtime for this old (sorry, middle-aged) lady. Actually, she’s not quite 60, and looking quite well on it!
Ah, there’s nothing quite like the deep purr of a huge diesel engine coming over the early evening air…

MSP180909Sometimes, a small piece of nature can speak for the rest. I found this little piece only today, and it seemed to say it all; autumn is only just round the corner. In some ways I find it a sad time of year, but it certainly has its own brand of beauty. What do you think?

Rose at End of SummerI took this picture this week because, besides being pretty, this seemed to powerfully symbolise the end of summer. That said, today has been very warm – but I think autumn will strike very soon. the morning and evening sun now has that yellow glint.
Notice too how the rose shows amazing beauty in imperfection: what a lesson to us all!
