Waiting to Fall

An array of leaves, low enough to allow the shot to include the parkland at Petworth. A place that is well worth a visit in Autumn.



About LensScaper

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'.

    I like seeing the green leaves, with their bits of yellow and brown. It’s easy to forget what a long, complicated process it is for trees to shed their leaves. We don’t really notice them until they’ve become those typical, blazing autumn colors. I’m glad you noticed these, and I like the way you used them in the shot.

      Thanks Linda. Autumn seems to the opposite of what was predicted this year. A hot dry summer would lead, so we were told, to an early autumn. It hasn’t happened, if anything Autumn seems to be later than expected near where I live. I’m not complaining! Each genus of tree seems to have its own timetable which provides the variety of colours across the broader landscape.

  5. As Paula comments, it’s an unusual composition. I particularly like the closeup of the leaves with the open view of the whole park in the background.

      Many thanks Otto. This was shot from inside, or under, the canopy of the tree so I am looking out at the leaves. It creates an unusual view and I was actually quite surprised at the contrast within the image when I first looked at back home.
