"Autumn by the White Cart Water"

By RonnieAG
My last image, An Honest View, was contentious compositionally and I appreciate all the comments which were so helpful and carefully thought out by so many.
I am particularly indebted to Stephen {Tooth} for his critique in which he managed to put into words what I think I had misgivings about.
Today's snap is hopefully less so.........a view of the autumn beeches by the White Cart Water in Pollok Country Park.

the colours of honey and sunshine, green leaves and ripe fruit..
an autumn symphony, a bit melancholic but that is the theme of the season.

Like Trev I do take exception to the word snap, to get and present this fine image has required a fair degree of thought and skill.

A beautiful snap, Ronnie. I was going to deconstruct it but my wife has just walked in and seen it and said, 'that's really nice'. I don't think even I've had that accolade from her so I'll just leave it at that.Smile

Your beautiful autumn tree is a frame in itself and makes a wonderful image.
Can't get enough of these colours.

A very well executed image. You've used the structure of the branches overhead and the tree trunk to frame the image and create a strong comp. The autumn colour of the beeches really finishes it off.

Quote: you are busy stirring some creative juices in me

Hermanus echoes my thoughts, the scene lends itself to an easel, canvas and brushes, and the water looks wonderful behind the canopy of autumn leaves.

You seem to have taken full advantage of the breaks in the weather to catch some nice autumn colour Ronnie with several fine coppery leaved images now in your collection but it is this one that has the greatest appeal to me.

Excellent work !
