Autumn light

Went for a short wander this morning as it was such a beautiful day, and was struck by the strength of the sun, and hence the shadows. Should have stuck an ND filter on and got a better sky…

I needed a person in this shot, but all I got was an empty bench!



  1. I understand that you are illustrating the light and you have succeeded, but could you, would you, show us the colour? 🙄

    • Hahaha – I was waiting for someone to say that!! I might just oblige… but the colours aren’t fantastic… However, I do have some nice autumn colour shots taken the other day which I’ll get around to posting soon 🙂

  2. I’m rushing down the country to sit on that bench, just for you, Sue! Hold on to that sunshine 🙂

  3. The light is wonderful these days, and you have caught it. I just long for colours, because this year we are short of them…Last year brought a wonder of colours and crisp mornings. This autumn is grey and rainy.

  4. Prefer the intense colors… but a great sepia image.

    • Thanks….i actually prefer this particular image in monochrome, because of the shapes of the bench and the shadows…..

      • You know me by now … and I’m not really a B&W fan, some images talks to me .. but not many and I’m not very good on capture them myself neither, maybe that is the reason. I know that most serious photoghaper like working in B&W, just for the reason as you say here. I want our world to be colorful and warm.

      • Hmm, wouldn’t it be great if the world was colourful and warm…well, there is plenty that is. And why not have cheerful photographs? 🙂
