The preliminaries of Autumn are now over. The clocks have changed, resulting in a closing in of the end of the day, the stronger winds have removed most of the leaves from the trees and now just a few colourful stragglers remain.
These berries are overhanging a farm track next to my house – a track that leads from the fields to the barn where straw and hay is stored. The binding string in the picture has obviously blown from a passing wagon and has attached itself loosely to the sprigs of berries. I was attracted to this images by the play of sunlight on the berries and on the string blowing in the breeze. I have removed a very noisy background to focus on the main elements.
These three pictures are the result of my experimentation with the watercolour filter which, I felt, was appropriate to the subject matter. I am not displeased with the final images.
The photos below were taken during a stroll along the bridle way on Sunday morning, the last day of September. There are clear indications of the transition from late summer into autumn.
