A splash of Autumn Color

It’s a wet, dull day in the UK today and the forecast for the weekend isn’t any better – not good news for all the 5 November ‘Guy Fawkes’ bonfires and fireworks celebrations that are planned.  So a splash of color is a tonic for me and hopefully for you too.

This is an image I shot 2 days ago of a shrub from the Dogwood family (the Cornus genus) that has particularly dazzling Autumn colors. I spent a while yesterday dealing with some very obtrusive highlights which are now eradicated.  The process was boring but it was worth it.

Hi - I'm a UK-based photographer who started out 45+ years ago as a lover of landscapes, inspired by my love of outdoor pursuits: skiing, walking and climbing. Now retired, I seldom leave home without a camera and I find images in unexpected places and from different genres. I work on the premise that Photography is Art and that creativity is dependent on the cultivation of 'A Seeing Eye'.
