We are half way through November and in my central area of the UK, Autumn is not yet through as today’s images (all taken on 15 Nov) show.
I’ve said it before, and I will continue to say it: there is beauty in the detail. In a single leaf, or a cluster of leaves. In the fallen and the yet to fall. In the canopy and at low level. In the perfect and the imperfect. The diseased, decayed and rotten. In the variegation. Each tree and shrub has its own personal Autumn apparel that it wears with pride.
These first two images are of the Smoke Bush (Cotinus Coggygria) that grows at our front gate, which shows an extraordinary palette of colour in Autumn.
The remaining ten were all taken in a fifty-minute short walk through Campbell Park in Milton Keynes.
Enjoy them. Click on the first image in the gallery and then navigate through, or click on a single image for an enlargement.
