‘Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’

Ancient parchment?

Although it might  resemble a fragment of velum from a discovered ancient document it is actually a section of a fallen autumn leaf!  I was intrigued by the pattern of the markings, the colours and the textures.

Autumn gains pace

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.

Abstract 136 ‘Autumn Squares’

One of the most attractive features of autumn is the range of colours produced by nature.  But I’m not sure we always appreciate the full extent of that range.

To create the pattern below I used the eyedropper tool to extract the colours from just two or three of my autumn images. No two colours are exactly alike  –  there are subtle differences  –  and the selection was by no means exhaustive.   It was not the purpose here to indicate or suggest any quantitative balance.  Maybe I will attempt that on some other occasion  –  or maybe not!!!   For now let’s just enjoy the colourful pattern.
