Autumn leaf

I think autumn is an amazing season.  This year in the UK the trees have put on a wonderful show.  I think it is the most spectacular I have seen in a long while.
I collected a few leaves this year.  This shot shows the amazing detail in a leaf.  I put the leaf in my light tent and used a flash (manually) behind the leaf to provide a burst of flash.

Remember Remember

We went down to the beach this evening to watch the fireworks.  Some people have got lots of money to spend on them.  So it was a great free show for us.  This is the best fireworks picture I have ever taken!!

Miserable Monday Weather

Today was a damp miserable weather day in Essex.  We went to visit the arboretum at Mark's Hall, only to find it closed.  However, we decided to go on the woodland walk which skirts around the gardens.  This shot shows the walk back to where we parked the car.  There were so many beautiful colours around today.

This is a shot of Haddon Hall in Derbyshire, it's just a few minutes outside the village of Bakewell (nice puddings there).  The hall has been used in a few films.  It is a very interesting place to visit.
