I found this scene just today, while travelling through a nearby area of this amazing county. I noticed evidence of recent high winds, and so I don’t expect we shall have scenes like this one for much longer, but it did seem to typify something which is so special about England. And, of course, that cloudy sky was changing by the minute, as England’s sky always does.It's kind to share!
This picture seemed to sum up the recent weather, yesterday. But it made me think; can dull weather ever be beautiful? Of course, it depends what we mean by beauty, but mist has intrigued artists and photographers for a long time. It can add an almost enchanting depth to an otherwise unremarkable scene. Perhaps many of nature’s beautiful traits are not obvious at first.It's kind to share!
While out for a few minutes’ walk in Wollaton Park yesterday, I hoped I’d get a picture or two that weren’t just the same old ‘autumn’ shots. The light was fading fast (and the park soon closing) when I came across this scene. It seemed a bit symbolic – as another year is nearly through, and autumn is well and truly here, these young deer remind us of how new life has entered the year, and how we shouldn’t give up hope in times of adversity and so much suffering in the world.
As the light fell, and the evening grew colder, they moved with incredible gracefulness – and silence!
The obvious, and yet amazing, thing to say about autumn leaves is that they are all different. Every single one. These hamamelis mollis leaves caught my attention last night.
We live in a commercialised world that tells us that perfection is beauty. But just take the time to look at nature, and you’ll see, in perceived imperfection, amazing beauty. What a lesson!
I think most of us would agree, we’ve been having a lot of weather lately. Cold, warm, fine, wet, clear, cloudy… you name it. What I caught in this picture is, no doubt, one of the many strange results. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything similar before!It's kind to share!
I found these flowers while out on a short walk yesterday (Saturday.) I’m not even sure what they are, but what struck me was the way this picture is symbolic of the turn of the seasons; there are still a few flowers around, but there are seed heads and fruits, too. Here, they sit side by side, just for now.It's kind to share!
Looking for something colourful today, I found these tiny leaves, autumnal and yet uplifting, with their stunning combination of shape and line, together with vivid colour. They are only small – this is, once again, a macro shot. It’s all about using these… [author points to eyes]It's kind to share!
I found this only today (Sunday.) I didn’t have any very interesting photos this week, owing to pressure of work, and was wondering what to post! This seemed to shout “A mild, wet autumn day” so effectively. (By the way, I didn’t rearrange those leaves – that’s how they were!)It's kind to share!
When I spotted this tree only today, I wanted to grab some pictures quickly! I thick it’s lovely to find such beauty in what can often be a sad part of the year. Notice that one leaf that is partly yellow; has another leaf been resting just over it, I wonder?It's kind to share!
Venturing outside today I came across these very pretty but highly poisonous berries that remind us that the back end of the year has come round again! The leaves and stems of the yew plant are also poisonous. however, some birds eat the berries, the poisonous seed passing through them intact!It's kind to share!
