Golden Leaves

Continuing on the Burnham Beeches theme, here’s another typical autumn shot. A great many more trees had their leaves than here in Blarney where most trees are naked. While in town this evening I discovered to my dismay that my Canon 10-22 lens is broken. The manual focus ring is completely jammed and the zoom […]

Autumn Leaves

Hues of gold and brown greet the eye in Burham Beeches. Yes I know it’s technically winter but autumn is always associated with falling leaves, while winter is cold and snow falls instead, so please humour me! I do have a couple of other shots of yesterday’s Burnham Beeches photo but I’ll leave those until […]

The beauty of Burnham Beeches

We visited Burnham Beeches last Friday afternoon, on a day when torrential rain was forecast but thankfully the weather forecast was completely wrong. This large forest close to the city of London is an amazing sight to behold with ancient trees, and at this time of year beautiful, vivid (eh Matt?) and colourful leaves that […]

Windsor Leaves

Down by the river in Windsor the ground was littered with autumn leaves and served as a perfect foreground for someone else’s castle.. That was a great idea of Matt’s to head down that direction! Aperture ƒ/22 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 15s

Fitzgerald’s Park Bench

Fitzgerald’s Park Bench A park bench in the lovely and picturesque Fitzgerald’s Park, Cork. Something awful happened. I went away with my family on a great weekend break on Friday and in the rush and stress I forgot to post some photos for the weekend. I’m catching up!

Brilliant Winter Leaves

Brilliant Winter Leaves Just over a month ago, some of the trees around here still had leaves. I took the camera with me one evening when we went for a walk around the park. The leaves were a lovely bright and vibrant colour, but obviously this has been a little touched up in the GIMP […]

Winter Leaves

Winter Leaves It’s cold out there and the trees are almost bare. Some leaves still hang on however!

Doneraile Park Stream

Doneraile Park Stream Water flows through Doneraile Park on a cold November afternoon. Despite the late season, leaves still cling to the branches of nearby trees although they’ve turned golden-orange and make a beautiful covering on the ground. I was quite surprised that the Wikipedia page for Doneraile didn’t mention Elizabeth Aldworth, one of only […]

Standing in the gutter

Standing in the gutter It’s pouring rain, I’m just after eating a delicious meal with family and what do I do? Go shoot the leaves in the drain across the road. I can tell you it was difficult enough holding the umbrella in one hand, camera in the other, thinking about composition and keeping my […]

Late Autumn Leaves

Late Autumn Leaves The browns and yellows of Autumn grow darker as the rain soaks in and leaves disintegrate on the ground. A bench stands tall in the distance at Doneraile Park, Co. Cork.
