As 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.It's kind to share!
It 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…?It's kind to share!
Yesterday, 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…
Sometimes, 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?It's kind to share!
I 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!
