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.
lovely selection of photos, i love autumn colours too, though I rarely seem able to capture them well on camera
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.
Gorgeous. Autumn is by far the prettiest time of year. And your pictures are lovely.
Thanks Lucy 🙂 appreciate your kind words 🙂 x
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.
Thanks! It’s been a while since I had time to sit and snip like that! I used one of them for my blog banner too *peers upwards*
Lovely shots 😉 @Kahanka
Thank you! x
Ahh I love Autumn colours too and chose similarly to you. That canvas is gorgeous! I want one!
Thanks! I’m totally happy to email you a high res version of the photo if you want to get a print or canvas done?
Beautiful shots. Autumn is just great for photos. My favourite is the one with the door, stunning.
Thanks! I’m very fond of that door…
I love your name and picture, Funky Wellies 🙂
Oh you make my head spin! You write fantastic posts and now I discover you take amazing photos too! They are great great GREAT !
Ahh, your comments always give me the biggest grin, Mammasaurus, thanks so much for the kind words 🙂 xx
Totally in love with Autumn and the gorgeous array of colours it produces. You’ve captured them wonderfully and I am now inspired to cut out leaves! Thanks x
So pleased you’re feeling inspired! Fingers crossed for lots of nice autumn weather days and not too much rain so you can get out and about xx
you have perfectly captured my favourite season… stunning photos! thank you for making me smile on this very grey glasgow day!
Aww, thanks Sheonad, I really appreciate that. It’s been an awfully grey day across here today too!
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.
Fabulous shots. Love that blue door. Wonder what’s behind it.
Thank you so much. I don’t want to spoil the illusion by telling you what’s behind the door! It’s not very exciting!
Scrumptious colours 🙂 Makes me want to wrap a woolly scarf round my neck and go for a walk through the crunchy leaves! Wonderful photos
Ooh yes, I love scarf weather too… as long as I can come home for a hot chocolate afterwards 😉 Thanks for stopping by and commenting x
Wow, what lovely pictures. The out of focus one is really clever 🙂
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
lovely photos, I too choose the lovely autumn green and golds, it is my favourite time to photograph.
Mine too, although not on a rainy day like today is 🙂 Thanks for the kind words and for taking the time to comment 🙂 x
Lovely series of photos. I love the heart shape leaf. I too selected autumn colours for my post.
Thanks Glasgow Mummy! x
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!
Super crunchy! Nothing better… Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment x
