Gorgeous light, colours and tones Dougie. The light rays two uploads ago are spectacular too!

The backlit beech branches make beautiful windows through which to peer into the scene, Dougie, the sunshine enhancing the strong autumn colours and creating strong textures and shadows.
A bit more dreich than this today though.

This is so lovely Dougie. Those lower leaves look like they have been coated with gold. Love those 2 little flares coming through the leaves too. Moira

Barbara...just to sort out the contrast and tidy up some rubbish on the ground.

Moira...that's where I was hiding the sun from the lens, I was shooting straight at the sun.

A wonderfully composed and crafted photograph, one which contains five wonderful elements, colour, charm, detail, light and immense quality GrinGrinGrin

Those back-lit branches are hanging perfectly for you, Dougie.
A gorgeous autumal day that looks perfect for a walk in bracing country air, taking advantage of the autumn finery.

(Today is dreich here, the first snow, though not enough to cause excitement).

The light on those leaves is fabulous, and would have made the exposure darned difficult. Very well done.

Not much that I could add to the above. Delicious image.

You have held the exposure very well by using the branches to shield the direct sunlight making the leaves transluscent and giving them that beautiful golden glow.

Autumnal beauty Dougie, love the veil of multi coloured leaves !!

To wander along this path,
Alone, with only my thoughts,
Or maybe a companion,
To share the quiet moments,
And still, to understand each other.

Thanks for this one, it's a beauty and so very peaceful.
