photoblog image Forest autumn

Forest autumn

Taken the same day as ~ this one ~ , this scene would look very different now because frosts and heavy rain will have brought many of the leaves down.

The picture was taken ~ about here~ and yes, there was a slight breeze, but I love the sparkling colours.

Beautiful picture, Ellie.
I love the effect of the "slight breeze" which you have used to make this picture very dynamic.
EJWilkins: It does, somehow. Nature's wonderful smile

This is a lovely scene; as a dedicated walker, I appreciate such a path! England has so many great foot paths - and the best part is that many of them just happen to go by a tea room or cafe! Wonderful idea to link to the satellite map of the location! I wasn't able to get to the first line ("this one") however.
EJWilkins: Ah, there's a problem there, here in the New Forest there are lots and lots of paths, but very, very few places to stop and eat. Picnics are the order of the day.
Thanks for telling me about the link, I hope I've fixed it now. It was to here

Autumn has certainly been spectacular this year, Ellie. Lovely capture. By the way, I love the Flash earth site you are linking to. I panned back a bit to get my bearings, and saw a strange thing. Just under where it says `New Forest`, there is a strange configuration of roads, or paths which look like the letter a inside a lozenge shape. What do you think this is? It has got me really intrigued.(:o)
EJWilkins: I like Flash Earth too, it's easier than Google Earth because it's web-based.
The funny shape, looking like a capital A is an old airfield .. runways and perimeter roads although they've now taken up most of the concrete to let it revert to Forest. It's before you get to Hatchett Pond, on the left, although you can walk across the heathland to reach it. They fly model aircraft there. If you've got a dog it's a good place to take a walk, but it always seems to be windy there.

Gorgeous shot Ellie. The autumn colours are superb
EJWilkins: Hmm, yes, they are pretty, but it's cold now, and I don't like that at all. sad

Ah the last days of Autumn, now rerapidly receeding and leaving us with the tree skeletons instead, another challenge for the days to come. well seen Ellie.
EJWilkins: About the same here Les, too much rain, lots of wind and it's sooo cold. sad

Excellent picture for a jigsaw puzzle. Imagine how you are going to battle to differentiate the pieces.

Lovely colours. We are into summer, so how can you still have autumn?
EJWilkins: Good grief, if this were a jigsaw I wouldn't know where to start.

Autumn here tends to start some time during September, if we're lucky it's a bit later. I suppose should be well over further north by now, and down here near the coast the leaves will be down by the end of the month. Winter, I suppose is December, January and February ... it's almost as if they've all shifted one block to the right, on the calendar, and then shrunk the summer by a month, because Spring always seems a teeny bit late (mid/end March), despite 'global warming'.

Splendid, Ellie. When I think of autumn, this is the kind of picture that pops into my head. Those yellow dots are perfection tingling in the wind....kudos, Eillie!
EJWilkins: That's what I liked so much about it when I saw the picture on the screen, the tingling and sparkle. Thanks Helen smile

This is one of those inviting shots, Ellie, that lures me in. I would love to take a walk there today!
EJWilkins: That'd be nice, but in reality it's bitterly cold now and with a freezing wind that sneaks right through your clothes. Best place = indoors, with a cat on your knee if you're lucky, to act as a hot water bottle. wink

Ellie, this forest of gold is so beautiful, love it, this picture realy invites to take a walk!!
I like it...I like pics that have a lot of other pics in it....don't know if that make any sense....
EJWilkins: It does make sense, and looking at this picture I know what you mean, although it's a single scene and 'only trees' there's quite a lot to look at. Thanks for making me look again Aksel. smile
Very nice shot Ellie. The colours are superb
EJWilkins: Thanks Richard smile

So incredibly rich. And it would make a fantastic jigsaw puzzle!
