Thanks, marty.....I could have done without the barrier pole in front of the deer though.
David. Mine is garnet too. Not in the same league as yours. Too much salt in the air for real autumn quality down here.
Lovely photos David - that first one really captures the essence of the season - fab
Beautiful pic of the Acer David. They grow well up here as long as they're sheltered. Passed a lovely one yesterday - quite small but had a stunning soft orangey glow. Will have to go out and look for it again!
Sure you dont mean steal it Fg!
This is one of my favourite autumn tint pics......I like the reflections & composition.
I'm visiting Wales & The Lake District during the first week of November, specifically looking to photograph some nice autumn scenes.
What wonderful pictures on this thread! I'd forgotten what a joy autumn is.
Here's my tiny acre. (About 70cm tall). I must have had it 15 years, in a pot, then planted out last year.
It was a very weeping shape so I've tried to train it a little more upright, removing lower branches and tying to the post. The ties have just been removed and fingers crossed it won't need much more help.
David as your coming to the lake district have you any gardens in mind to visit ?
Hi, Ann - I'm visiting Wales on the Sun 3rd & The Lakes on Wed 6th. I hadn't any gardens in mind, but as you know, the scenery in both places is stunning.....particularly in autumn.
PS, weather permitting.
are they day trips David or are you staying for a few days ? we have had a lot of heavy rain over the last few days so a lot of trees have lost there leaves but as you say the scenery is stunning and now we are both able we do have lots of days out and never tire of it and despite living here all our lives we can still find places we have never seen before although we do avoid the lakes in the high tourist season and go east into Yorkshire
pd- how could you think such a thing...
It was very pretty but I'm a good girl! There's another beauty near me which has been planted near a front door which is a shame. It's huge and is a stunning colour just now.
David- Lakes are lovely at this time of year. Used to holiday there often in early autum. Hope the weather is kind to you.
Ann - these will be two day trips. The one to Wales being with a coach company, the one to the Lakes will be with my local camera club.....Regards the latter, if the trees were in their full autumn glory, it would just be a bonus.
Fairygirl - I agree, although I've never had a holiday there, I've visited many times.
David, whats your choice of camera ?

Well, Brumbull....my choice of camera would be a Nikon DSLR, costing around £7000. But, (back to the real world) my present camera is Fuji S4500; although I have a couple that have technology has left behind.
My Fuji is a bridge camera (as against a DSLR) and does most tasks I require adequately. With flexibility such as a 30 times magnification lens, down to 1cm macro & super-macro features.
There's much more to it than that, but I'm not sure how interested you are in the ins & outs of photography.
David, that was going to be my question, viz., what sort of camera and are you a,professional or keen amateur photographer? The picture ....reflections....is stunning.
Just an average amateur myself with no eye for photography and a cheapo camera but so tempted to learn more. What sort of camera would ??ou suggest without breaking the bank?
Verdun - First of all I would talk photography until the cows come home, but I think it would be discourteous to 'happymarion' to highjack her thread.
Definately not a professional photographer.....it's just a pastime.
However, and to answer your query, I’ve seen remarkable results from this camera. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fujifilm-FinePix-S4500-Digital-Camera/dp/B0082B35W4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1382554036&sr=8-2&keywords=fuji+bridge+cameras
It would do all you need & more.
