The golden leaves on the oak in our service road are always the last to fall. They look beaut in the sunhine we’re having these chilly morns. It was -2C when we made coffee this morning, after 7:30am. It was well after 9am before Vika and I headed off on our daily amble down to the footbridge and back.

Lingering Autumn Leaves



Rain on the Swamp Mallet bark, at this time of the year, throws up an interesting palette. The camera picks up more brilliance than I can see with my naked eye.

A Daily Walk in Greyscale

I’m sharing these photos for Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Black and White
On her blog, Sally shares two fascinating examples of street art.

Here are some of the sensory moments I have each day when walking Vika. Changing the images to B&W breaks them down to the basic elements capturing my attention.

The feature photo shows flowering clover and belladonna straps, down by the footbridge at the end of our service road.

The light play on clover flower stalks intrigued me for weeks.
