Autumn

 

Ash Keys

 

Three bunches of Ash keys.

 

It's worth noting, if you're interested in that sort of thing, that Ash trees have black buds which you can see quite clearly in this picture, it makes them easy to identify when they're out of leaf.

I suppose the 4th set represents the purse of small change, Ellie...

Fine shot.
EJWilkins: Yep, wrong image uploaded! Typical idiot thing to do.

A super well focussed shot Ellie
EJWilkins: Easy to do this Chris, there wasn't anything behind them
Lovely image Ellie crisp and sharp with a perfect background.
EJWilkins: Managed to find a windless moment, so they stayed still long enough to get a decent shot!

EJWilkins: Ah, those are sycamore or maple seeds Ginnie, they seem to come in all sorts of sizes and all sorts of different colours too
Good shot so well lit
EJWilkins: Lucky the sun was shining on them Martin

Is this what the english will be tackling the aussies for?
EJWilkins: Errrm, not quite!
Good photo Ellie, and a good tip for an botany ignoramus.
EJWilkins: It's how I recognise these trees in the winter, it's an easy 'key' sort of thing to remember

Lovely detail
EJWilkins: Thanks
Really good detail and great background Ellie smile
EJWilkins: Lucky with the background, there was nothing close to these keys so it was quite easy to isolate them
I love the simplicity of this shot Ellie.
EJWilkins: Yes, doesn't happen very often does it?
Nicely taken Ellie..The autumn colour stands out well from the fuzzy background.
EJWilkins: They're such a lovely rich golden brown as they first ripen, then they turn a dull greyish brown, and land in our garden by their millions!
Nice composition Ellie. The background throws the Ash keys into a beautiful relief
EJWilkins: That's what I though too Bill, lucky there was nothing growing close behind them
Well done. I've been looking for a picture of these ash keys all autumn. Nothing has been quite right.
EJWilkins: They always seem to be too high up the tree to take an even vaguely reasonable picture, these ones were at eye level, which was a blessing.

I like the colour and crispness of the branch and leaves Ellie.... the DOF is great with your focusing.....petersmile
EJWilkins: Lucky with these Peter, because there wasn't anything close behind them, just a lovely plainish green.
very good, like the composition and the detail
Simply wonderful Ellie. Great focus point here!
