Autumn Leaves

A few more shots from my expedition to the woodland in Graves Park at the start of November. This time taking a closer look at the leaves and woodland foliage.

Autumn Woodland

Autumn is upon us once more. I wanted to capture some of this years autumn colours in their glory and what better place to do this than in woodland so I decided to explore the woodland within nearby Graves Park. The park has so much to offer all year round, from the grassy lawns, woodland and animal park it makes it the perfect place to capture nature throughout the seasons.

I had attempted some photos earlier in the year of the woodland, but they did not not turn out as good as I had hoped. The woodland thrives in Autumn an is more atmospheric showcasing the many different colours and hues of Autumn.

Under the canopy of the trees the woodland can be quite dark, which is why my previous attempt did not fair so well as this endeavour. On this occasion I to captured a few different subjects which I shall share in later posts.

I feel quite lucky that we stay so close to Graves Park, no longer have to trek to the other side of the city. All in all feel lucky that we are surrounded by much more parks etc than where we lived before. As much as living in the city has it benefits it is nice to be able to withdraw to a less urban environment.

I feel I shall have many more photographic expeditions to Graves Park during the various seasons to capture what this natural wonderland has to offer.

Colours of Autumn

I forgot how much I love Autumn. I may not be a fan of the cold that the Autumn and Winter months bring us, but when the sun is shining on a warm Autumn’s day it brings to life the colours of Autumn. As natures greens turns to golds, reds, and browns, giving us the last hint of warmth before Winter sets in.



Autumn Resting Place

As autumn is fading ever faster in to winter I though it was about time that I attempted to capture some of this years autumn colours. Some of my favourite locations to photograph in autumn are cemeteries, so I decided to visit one of our local cemeteries the other day to see what I could capture. Although graveyards can be seen as quite depressing and sad places by the nature of what they represent, I actually quite enjoy visiting graveyards; I find the peacefulness and stillness very relaxing.

From a photographers’ point of view they can also be great places for nature photography as there is usually no one around to bother you or get in the way of taking that perfect shot. Some of the grave stones can provide interesting shapes and shadows against the usual natural surroundings. Most cemeteries have trees and vegetation other than what people leave at their dearly departed loved ones gravestones as a mark of their remembrance. Autumn is a perfect time to capture nature’s golden hues against such a peaceful setting.
