                            Beautiful photos! I think we are still several weeks away from leaves like that.

                              Thank you so very much, for your kind comments, Dane!

                              First snowfall is expected here some time tonight or before tomorrow... about 30-40 cm of snow according to the papers... I guess autumn is over for this time then.

                                In the latest posts here I like #69 and #70 as much for the sky and clouds as for the autumn trees, and that evocative single leaf of #84 is among my most favourite autumn images.

                                From earlier, #62 continues to touch me every time I look at it. I marvel that you knew how the tilting of the camera viewpoint and the consequent positioning of the sunburst and that central leaf would say so much more emotionally than a straightforward view of prettily-coloured leaves. It speaks to me of the fragility the onlooker feels. Yet at the same time this is not “autumnal melancholy” but rather an envisioning, beyond the soon-to-be-bare winter trees, of a bright sunlit spring.

                                The other image I keep on coming back to is #63.
                                It must total hours even, me looking at it since you posted it, and I still don’t completely understand why it draws me the way it does. Sure it is a strong composition, those two widely spaced and wide girthed tree-trunks, and boldly centred, the narrower lamp-post.

                                At first I wondered if the post and its position reminded me of the slender sapling planted in a gap that Dutch elm disease brought to a row of trees in a park I frequent here in Edinburgh. Or perhaps it made me ponder on the fixed artificiality of the post compared with the growing living trees, the curved lamp bit at the top merely mimicking the branch of the tree on the left and pretending to bear the surrounding leaves.

                                But more and more I came to find that lamp-post scary, disturbing, malevolent even, its lamp hidden, the post barring the way to the bright gold trees beyond….
                                Well, wasn’t there anything you used to run past quickly when you were a child?

                                So the image is less about autumn than the others; it captures a sense of place strongly, and I’m now imagining the same view in other seasons. I very much have the urge to find this exact place sometime, stand on that spot and confront the lamp-post.
