First fall

By javam    
I headed over to Burnham Beeches this afternoon with a couple of friends and my son Jake.

While I was off taking some picture of the wildlife, my friend Ben took Jake off to play with the leaves. I thought this made for a good shot (and better than I managed of the wildlife). Although the obvious choice was to upload this in colour I liked the feel of a mono version so I have uploaded that as another version.

Thanks for looking and comments on preference over mono/colour welcome as well as any other comments.

I think the colour one is the best Neil, smacks of Autumn, i like the way the subjects appear oblivious to the picture being taken.
