Enjoying the colours of autumn

This is one of those blog posts that nearly didn’t happen. I was uncertain about posting this image on the blog but Mrs Adams persuaded me otherwise. She said it featured a beautiful mix of autumn colours and that I should share it. On reflection, I decided she was correct and so here it is!

I hope you’ll agree this photograph features some beautiful autumn colours. That’s certainly what my wife thought.

Okay, so I wasn’t sold on the image at first, but I do quite like the depth of field and the slightly hazy focus in the foreground. I also like the branch coming in from the top left of the image which frames the trees in the distance. It reminds me a little bit of this picture of my daughters, Helen and Izzy, playing in a forest.

I took this picture during a recent family walk. I had purposefully lagged behind everyone else so I could spend a bit of time taking pictures of the woodland.

Do you like the image? If so, is it the colours that appeal to you or something else?

While I have your attention, can I take this opportunity to point you in the direction of my revamped Pinterest page? Among boards dedicated to family life, education, fatherhood and parenting, I have created one dedicated to my photography.

I confess that I had ignored Pinterest for a very long time so my page was in desperate need of updating. I’d be delighted if you followed this link, had a look around and followed the page. That said, I am also looking for great boards and pages to follow so if you have one yourself, do let me know as I’d love to see your pins.

As I often do with my photography posts, I’ll be adding this one to the #MySundayPhoto linky which is hosted by the Photalife blog. If you want to visit the linky yourself and see imagery produced by other bloggers, click on the badge below.

    Lots of beautiful autumnal colours. That bluey/green is stunning. It looks like a fantastic place for a walk. #MySundayPhoto

      It sure is a wonderful place for a walk. I was surprised by the mix of colours.

    I do like it! It reminds me of a Monet. I’m surprised at how much green there is in it. Did you take it a few days ago? There’s no green left round here, in fact there’s hardly any leaves left at all!

      Reminds you of a Monet? Wow, I clearly did something right! the image was taken very recently but in the ensuing few days everything has indeed turned to brown, yes. I got in there just in time it seems.

    That’s a really lovely image John. The colours and haze blend beautifully.

      I know what you mean Dave, the colours and haze do work quite well don’t they?

    Hi John (Yay! got your name right this week!), this is a nice photo and you were right to share it. The light gives a nice calming feel to the photo. I can imagine the sounds and smells of your walk just fro looking at your photo.

      Awesome! So it fired your imagination, that’s great to hear. It is quite a serene image isn’t it?

    Love the light in this image making the colours pop a bit and that lovely green leafy branch coming over making you focus attention to the trees behind. Good shot John
