The trees and plants are losing leaves by the hour, never mind days. The weather has been typical too in the last days. Gone is the golden October and it has given way to a wet and windy climate. The season is past it's zenith and we are inching closer to winter. Yes, it feels good to reiterate the obvious. It was like a bad itch at the back of my throat (or rather in the palm of my hand in this case?) that needed to be scratched :)
With that thing then behind us, I present to you more autumnal hues.
In spite of the nice colours still on offer, I have gone out on a limb and finished the below image in a soft monochrome tone. Maybe I was just looking for a visual respite from the overpowering shades of yellows and red but it really looks like it works here.
A couple of images were once again captured either by getting low or even pointing the camera at the ground. I was once again quite conscious while doing this. Was it probably because I wasn't a tourist here with a devil-may-care attitude but rather in my own neighbourhood? Maybe not entirely but I believe it plays a part.
