Smile! It will soon be Christmas.

Carly has asked us for photographs showing autumn and will not accept archived entries. This caused me some trepidation as carrying the camera causes me increased pain. At first I thought I would just photograph my hanging basket, but then I knew I could never be satisfied with that.

'Autumnal Fire' From Colour Contrast Continuity

I planted my winter hanging basket to ‘gain on the swing’ ‘autumnal fire’.
The cyclamen will hopefully flower for many months and warm the entrance to my home and the winter violas will produce many different faces to give a smile to any visitor when they have been given time to grow...

I took my camera out with me this morning for the first time in many weeks.
I was determined to take photographs that would show nature always beats any attempt of mine to organise the decoration for the season.

'Autumnal Light' From Colour Contrast Continuity

Autumnal light shows the canal path I walk with my dogs every morning and where I found the other pictures to photograph except the nuts of the Hazel tree that grows beside the road I have to walk along in order to gain the relative peace I find beside the water.

My favourite is the Horse Chestnut Conker that seemed to smile although it faced entering a tough world.

  1. OMGosh - it does look like a great big smile!
    Your hanging basket is beautiful and the photo's from the canal path are just breathtaking - they truly are!

  2. Each shot is more spectacular than the first. I've been thru a nature walk!

  3. Very beautiful pictures! I can't pick a favorite; they are all spectacular autumn shots.

  4. Great shots. I think I like Autumnal Light the best.

    The last one looks like a little puffer fish. :)
