It's that time of year again - 'season of mists and mellow fruitfulness' when things, well, fall. Actually there's new life - buds and stuff as well, seeds and so on - other than the buds, of course, lots of these things fall. Yes I know I should be British and write 'autumn' but of course 'fall' could be interpreted any other way - I think I'm getting confused. Anyway, 'fall' it is, so I'm looking forward to autumnal and other images that fall within the decription of 'fall.'
As rule 8 says, 'have fun.'

The rules:
1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. All images must be taken after the theme is announced.
3. The challenge runs from 8pm on the Sunday and runs until 8pm the following Sunday.
4. Only one upload per member.
5. Please feel free to comment on the entries once judging is complete.
6. The person who hosts is the judge for that week challenge and the judge’s decision is final.
7. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week.
8. Have fun
9. Try not to fall over when photographing.

Well, I suppose that falls into the category of 'fall' too.

Avoided the gull dropping and went of a twiglet left from a hedge copping earlier in the week.
It's cold, so out, shoot, in and get warm again.
Think I might have to move south, the hardy Northerner image has slipped......

OK, time's up! I'll go and have a look - and a mild (hopefully) panic attack whilst trying to decide on the winnerSmile

Nice to see a good turn-out - after looking in earlier I thought there'd only be a few, which would make life a lot easier. However, a few Malc-style comments (although I think he's actually inimicable myself, which is meant as a compliment, honestly) before I continue to panic, but won't be long....
DaveRyder - well, it isn't Twiggy as I remember her, but, well, come to think of it...definitely 'fallen' (or was it pushed?)
Gypsyman - nice bit of observation! I wonder what will happen next!
Slowsong - oh no! Not Christmas yet! Mind, I do like the red-green complimentary colours - is this painting lessons creeping in?
Saltireblue - gardeners are supposed to PLANT stuff, not just let it grow. Heavens, if nature gets its way... I love the colours and contrasts, though.
EddieAC - I'm sure traffic lights are in a different sequence, but maybe I've been in France too long? Nicely done, I have to admit
Cattyal - grabbed from a gutter? How tall are you? Frightening! Nice macro...
Photolinda - leaf fall and waterfall. Looks almost alive - does it bite, SWMBO asks.

Back again, after much soul-searching. A lovely set of images, which is unsurprising really. This week the accolade goes to Malc, aka Saltireblue for his beautiful image of 'Fallen Fruits.' Thank-you all for participating and look forward to next week's challenge. Well done and over to you Malc!

Well done Malc and many thanks Pete!! Smile

Yes, traffic lights are in a different sequence and that is why I put "Almost" in the title. I didn't want to move them though and photographed them as I found them.

The way some people treat junctions though you could be fooled onto thinking the sequence is accurate. Tongue
