"Autumn in the Beechwood"

By RonnieAG
Another one from this season's autumn collection (does that make me sound as if I'm about to present my latest catwalk collection???): I liked the horizontal beech branch acting as a counterpoint to verticals.

My thanks to all who commented on Heron and to Gary {gary_d} for his User Award.

My very thoughts too, Ronnie. The leaves runs along that lower third v. Nicely and the scene is a riot of colour. Lovely image.

Unusual image with the horizontal branch so full of colour set against those upright trunks.
Just when you think we've exhausted autumn - you bring us another beauty.

I love good forest photos and this one is great Ronnie ! The horisontal branch immediately drew my attention as well - it does a lot to the image !! Great stuff !!

Great comp. I think Beech make my top favourite woodland scene. Something special about their colours, the light through their branches and of course, all those lovely, crunchy leaves lying beneath!! Guess they'll not be over "crunchy" given the present weather though Grin Sorry I had to look in so late/early. Have had no Internet most of yesterday. Weather related, perhaps

Ronnie I now have a picture of you on the catwalk in your fine tartan - actually probably far nicer than some of the bazaar stick insects we see!

Not only a counterpoint, Ronnie, but it ties the verticals together in a tight composition. Beautiful colours as well.
