Colours of Autumn

Every season has its beautiful shades of colour, summer just gone has the sky, most of the time a gorgeous shade of blue, a great profusion of colour from flowers and even what people are dressed in! Early Spring lends itself to the opening of succulent leaves, slowly unfolding and tight buds wanting to show off their delicate , yet  exquisite colours.

When summer is very sunny hot and dry, these are some of the images seen.

The multi colours start slowly in spring and strengthen as we get towards the end of the season.  These photos  were taken in Windsor great park in May, 2012, what a combination of colours!!


Autumn, although wet, brings about different flora and fauna. Walking through the Windsor Great Park, it is simply amazing seeing the different colours of leaves and berries at different stages. The lush moss, mushrooms and toad stools. Under each dying bark, log, leaf are millions of mini beasts scuttling away hurriedly , trying to hide from the gazing eyes of photographers or the bright light!

Autumn is simply amazing!!

I have especially enjoyed this year’s autumn as we have gone wandering around forests trying to catch beautiful images of all sorts in sight. October also saw the great storm where trees were uprooted or  cruelly branches broken off. This was a good occasion to get close up on those autumnal coloured branches that are usually so high up the trees and sometimes just a little bit too difficult to capture on camera!

Gorgeous tea cloths hanging from autumnal coloured leaves and branches

These  gorgeous lanterns show their reflective qualities so well among these  white creamy berries with the orangey browny background profusion of leaves.

At the Guildhall in Windsor on Sunday the 7th July

It was my first time to enter the  magnificent Windsor Guildhall last Sunday. The Windsor Emporium run by Jackie Couzens organised an Art, Craft and Vintage fair. This is held every first Sunday of the month. There was a beautiful array of gorgeous paintings, ceramics, jewellery, hand knitted children’s toys, silk scarves…just to mention a few. There was an equally fantastic crowd of customers and visitors. The walls were adorned in beautiful paintings…Image
