Summer tree


There begins to be the hint of autumn around ... chilly temperatures in the mornings, an abundance of berries - rowan, elderberry, blackberry and of course those magnifient conkers (horse chestnuts)  - and hints of red and gold visible on a few trees.  I want to hang on to summer for a bit longer!  A walk in my local woods shows that green still dominates.  I love the way the sunlight filters through the leafy canopy.  Hirst Woods is a patch of semi-ancient woodland and has a good mixture of trees including oak, beech, sycamore and birch.

  1. Yes distinctly changeable. Feels like Autumn although doesn't look like it yet as the leaves haven't really started turning yet.

  5. A lovely shot. It still looks summery, hang on to it a bit longer. We have a hint of it arriving with temps already up to 28*C.
