No, I just stuck it through the bedroom window and slapped everything on auto. The colour lasted 15 seconds at the most. The leaves had already gone off the tree, late last year.

There you go....and there I would have been pratting around with that thar 'exposure compensation' and the opportunity would have passed.

triffic sunset, fidget. Did you darken the tree using aperture compensation on your camera?

You're very kind, Fidget, but it's easy peasy with such lovely subject matter.

I'm over the moon to think I've inspired others to visit.

Lovely David 


Thanks, FG.....the slideshow would have had about a dozen or so likewise.....will try another day.

Geoff was on another level for me. I can honestly say that walking around Barnsdale one could almost sense the great man's presence...the birds are finger tame.

Beautiful place!

Thanks, KEF.....tad irritating.

Not sure what month, Fidget, but it was a hot day, so I would guess June/July.

This shot from the same file indicates how sunny it was.

Here here Verdun - he was my inspiration too and I often re-read the books I have that he wrote on gardening.  Is Barnsdale open to the public?

Yes, it is open to the public, Forester....that's when I took that pic.

I would offer to post a slideshow of my visit, but as I've posted it before, I'm cautious not to bore peeps.
