Forever Autumn


This week's theme courtesy of Tom, is Autumn, or Fall, as our American cousins like to call it. A relatively simple theme to capture. But I was looking for something a bit different; a bit more unique than the usual shots of brown and red tinted trees. So I thought I would take a hint from Tony Hart, and try and create something with the leaves themselves. My first attempt was poor, to say the least. Then Gail fiddled with them a bit. I was after a sort of rocky mountain, full of texture and colour. I know a blue background may have helped. But in the end I gave up, and have gone for a nude, sunlit tree instead!

This is a fantastic song from my favourite album ever; Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds. Enjoy
