The Gallery: Colour

I was totally bowled over by the kind comments on my entry to The Gallery last week, on the subject of home, so I’ve decided to give it a whirl again this week. The prompt is Colour… 

Autumn is my favourite season by a mile. Eva Wiseman did a brilliant piece in the Observer the other week about why she too is a fan of the fall, but one of the few things that she didn’t mention was the colours. It’s a brilliant time of year to get out and about with your camera – wait for a crisp, bright day, wrap up warmly, and then head out to capture some of those fantastic umbers and ambers and burnished browns.

I tried to limit myself, but it was tricky… sorry!

This is a deliberately out-of-focus shot so that you concentrate on the colours rather than the details of the trees.

This is the road that goes past our house.

I love the green and the gold together in this one.

My lovely buddy Kez Dugdale, who is now an MSP, has got a canvas print of this leaf hanging in her office at Holyrood.

Umm, yup. As I said, I love Autumn and all its wonderful colours. I’ve also been known to sit at the dining room table and cut up leaves into heart shapes. Now you know how I spend my time when DorkySon’s at nursery. Don’t judge me.

To see how other people have interpreted the colour theme, head on over to The Gallery at Sticky Fingers and spend some time browsing the links.

    • Thanks Juliet! I find autumn easier to capture than summer because the light isn’t as bright, but it’s hard to show the real range… so many beautiful trees in Edinburgh though.

  1. I love those colours – and I think the leaf/heart idea is a fantastic one if you have the time! My favourite photo out of all of these is the one with the door. Those colours go beautifully together.

  2. Oh you make my head spin! You write fantastic posts and now I discover you take amazing photos too! They are great great GREAT !

  3. Gorgeous shots of autumn, it hasn’t quite happened like that where I am, I’m still waiting, love the road pics and the blue door – stunning

    • Thanks! The door has only recently been repaired – it used to be all battered and peeling and even more beautiful… will have to find an old pic of it from my Flickr stream and post for comparison.

    • Thank you! I did some out of focus spring ones too, with lovely blue skies and yellow daffodils and purple crocuses… Just a few months to wait until I can post them! xx

  4. Autumn colours are just stunning, so warm and rich. I love that photo of your street covered in orange leaves…I just want to run through them! I hope they were crunchy!
