Another possible calendar shot from the Tyne Riverside Country Park. This was taken an hour or so after yesterday's, when the sun had finally appeared over the brow of the hills. If you look carefully you will see the change in the tones of the mist and the shadows.
The leaves seem to fall so quickly, they have scarcely changed colour and already many of the trees are bare.
I'm not a landscaper, these shots are about the way that local people enjoy the Riverside and why we love it.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

The blue contrasts so well with the golden browns. I wouldn't like to be running next to that guy though, I'd probably end up with a broken rib or two from those elbows!!

It was quite funny with the joggers Dave. They saw me standing waiting with the camera so they ducked behind me, onto the grass, to keep out of my picture. Which gave me a much more interesting composition - I ditched the shots I took of people actually on the path!

I'm not sure if it's meant to be a shot of the joggers, or a shot of the very nice trees on the right. It seems a shot of two halves. The sky is a nice blue, but it's empty and covers a lot of the frame space.

Another lovely autumnal scene being enjoyed by not only yourself but also the joggers in the picture.
I can feel the cold against my face whilst my eyes feel the warmth of the sunlight as it is strewn across the landscape and gathered by the leaves as they rustle in the gentle fresh morning breeze waiting for their turn to fall to earth.
Isn't it amazing what you can find in a picture, if only you let yourself be drawn in by it.

I was only thinking yesterday how quickly the trees are becoming bare, and how soon the wonderful colours of the leaves will disappear as they are swept up.

The joggers are about to run through a much colder patch shaded by the tree the area looks chilly in comparison to the part with the golden leaves. Funny how i go out n cold weather yet find it strange that runners are out there too. We all love what WE do and our hobbies seem to many oddball and daft I'm sure.

Thanks everyone. For me, this is about people, in a very big space. We're heading down there for a walk later this morning, it's not quite on our doorstep but not far off.

Good light and colours in this one.

You're right Moira, it seems no time at all from the colours changing, to the leaves all being down on the ground. That grass in the shade looks a bit frosty too! Wink A super capture, Moira, with the joggers very nicely positioned Smile

Thanks again; we've been walking down there this morning, there's scarcely a leaf left on the horse chestnut trees, just ten days after this was taken.

I do like the light in this, but yesterday's had more appeal for me, the people seemed more important in the image than today's.

Thanks for commenting on that. I like the tension of right-left movement of the runners, because it's not what the eye expects - the diagonal rising left-right creates balance to my way of seeing.

Quote: yesterday's had more appeal for me, the people seemed more important in the image than today's.

I agree Joline. What I really wanted was a cyclist in a bright red jacket. I waited for ages, then when one did come by I was talking to a friend and missed him entirely. This was the last picture that I took, and I liked it the best. But after that I realised that the frost had melted on the deep grass and as a result I was getting very wet feet.
One further point - I was surprised that nobody had mentioned horrible striation in the sky. I now realise that it's my monitor screen that's streaky from its last cleaning...

I do agree with runners coming into the shot , not what the eye expects but then again it's Moira and you always look for the unexpected, and find it !!! I also like the blue colour on the runner just gives the shot that bit extra. good work like it.

Another great image Moira, as for yesterdays I never can understand why folk think that a cold autumn scene needs to be '' warmed up '' I always like to show what I see and not what people think it should look like.

A good looking landscape Moira - perfect for a calendar I would think!

You've ended up with a rather nice composition, with the diagonal line running through the tops of the trees, and the diagonal lead of the path. The colour is very nice.

I was hoping to find that mono when I checked in today Smile
