"The North Wood"

By RonnieAG
The forrest floor has as much colour as the canopy at this time of year, and this is just a simple record of that fact, nothing fancy compositionally, although I tried to get a degree of symmetry with the two f/g trees and the regenerating rhododendron between.
nearly all the trees in shot are Beeches.

Details: ISO 100, 1/30 sec. at f/3.2. (Hand held with tree trunk for support)

Many thanks to all who voted for and commented on "Down by the Riverside" and with a special thanks to Dougie ("Scottishlandscapes") for this UA which was so much appreciated.

A great tapestry of Autumnal colours Ronnie as you rightly say the autumn carpet is as much interest as the trees good light colours and tones captured

Beautiful colours in this one
Some special colour and light in the urban forest. Hard to think that this is in the middle of a city like Glasgow. Great vision Ronnie.
