I hope everyone is well. We’re now into late autumn, the last of the deciduous trees are in their wonderful colours, days are getting much shorter and the misty mornings are plentiful. One day last week we had very heavy fog and I spied these little grasses which had gone to seed sparkling in the rising sun. Enjoy 🙂
Hello again everyone 🙂 My harvest at work went very well – a good tonnage of very clean fruit which is now in the care of the skilled winery guys. As you can imagine, I haven’t had a lot of time to take images but I did get to visit Duneira Estate today which is is now in full autumn glory today. A wonderful site to visit 🙂 This image is a double exposure taken ‘in camera’ of a full transition of autumn colour from green through to red 🙂
Hello everyone! This is an image of a ‘windflower’ or Japanese anenome – the bloom is tired, the light is soft and so it gave a feeling of the last dance of an evening. Autumn is here which for me means that it’s harvest time at work…we start picking this coming Monday and so for the next 10 days or so I will see tonnes and tonnes (literally) of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. An exciting but exhausting time so probably my last post for a few weeks. See you the other side! 😀
Hello again to everyone! A good harvest is safely in (our earliest ever) and now it seems autumn may be early – everything is out of step. I took this image yesterday, the Avenue of Honour in Macedon. I’ve taken an image of this road before (click for link), last time in spring on my converted Nikon D90 in near infrared. I may be a week too soon for the colours but still very beautiful 🙂
I must say I do admire people who post daily – it’s a huge effort! Well, here is day 3…I liked these specimens for their elegance. I went back a second time after it had been raining and did enjoy lying on my stomach in very wet undergrowth, delighting in this ‘other world’ of such diverse and delicate beauty 🙂
Hello everyone 🙂 I apologise as once again I am behind with my reader! I find a change in the seasons always brings fresh inspiration as new things forgotten for the past year re-appear. For me this autumn has been all about fungi and I have been exploring the huge pine plantation near where I live after a ‘tip off’ from my friend Evan. I have decided to do a daily series of different fungi, I’m afraid my knowledge as to their names is largely non-existent, but I hope you enjoy 🙂 All taken with natural light, the ISO is high in them all but I feel grainy quality suits the mood of the autumn forest floor.
Last Tuesday was a cold day full of quickly moving heavy rain bands – as I was leaving work there was a very heavy shower and the sun was low which resulted in a double rainbow. Regular readers will recognise this viewpoint from which I’ve taken many a sunrise 🙂
Autumn has been a bit odd this year – normally there are beautiful sunny days but this year has seen a lot of grey days and it is very dry. This image was taken last week, there was a frost and it turned out to be a beautiful day 🙂 This is a creek that runs into the dam and was taken literally as the sun was about to come up over the horizon.
Eventually I have got out to take some images 🙂 It’s late autumn here now but very dry so there isn’t as much fungi as normal. I did find this old gum tree in the dark shade of the forest which had an explosion of tiny fungi down a branch, much to my delight. The vibrant green is wet moss 🙂
