The Colours of Autumn

Is it just me, or has this been a particularly colourful autumn? In Redesdale, and in the surrounding countryside too, a palette of yellow, red, gold and bronze fills the woods as autumn gives way to winter.

At Sidwood this week, the autumn colour has been at its very best, such as here, alongside the lane which runs through the woodland ...

In places, the woodland floor is carpeted in cones and leaves ...

Nearer to home, at High Green, larch and some deciduous trees add colour to what could otherwise be a dull conifer plantation.

That's strange Emma; I was thinking the same thing today, driving past the trees where I live.
Everywhere just seems so much more colourful than usual.
Love those leaves and cones. It would make a beautiful print for the wall.

Definitly the best autumn in years. Good to see you were out enjoying it and doing it justice.

I think you're right Emma - it does seem to be a gradual and exceptionally beautiful autumn. the Norway maples and wild cherries around here are looking particularly fine...

Thank you to Keith, Adrian, Phil, Colin, Linda and Roy for your kind comments. It's interesting to hear that the autumn colour in your own parts of the country is equally outstanding and giving pleasure.
