Those leaves really 'zing' against the rocky wall, Kate, a lovely contrast.

Beautiful colours in the rocks and trees Kate. I have tried hard to find photographs in that quarry but never succeeded.

a real good one,colours in the trees and slate compliment each other.

Beautiful autumn colours, Kate - the rock face is wonderful!

Lovely contrast of colours here Kate with the leaves and the slate.
Amazing how the rocks are slanting sidewards into the ground and adds
to the mystery of how they were formed….WinkWinkWink… 10 days and counting…….

Lovely picture.

Lovely textures, colours and tones here Kate. The detail in the slate is great. The rain has helped in this instance as slate is always more enhanced when wet. Very well done. Smile

This looks very much like the road leading out of our town. We have several slate quarries, too, and it seems that birch have an affinity for that type of soil.
Beautiful golden colors against the grey.
The silver birch tonal range of coloured leaves certainly stand out wonderfully against the black rocks. Well done Kate.
