Leaves, berries, river, roots and photographing the start of the Autumn.

I realise it has been a while since I last wrote a blog and I have been out and about taking what the season has to offer in and around Dartmoor.

I visited Bere Ferres last week and got some nice shots of the hawthorn berries by the estuary:

I love time of year when the light shifts and so many plants are backlit and are turning wonderful colours 🙂
I wandered across to the field near to my flat on Sunday to take soem of the newly turning leaves in the Devon hedgerow.

I also captured a couple of small snails curled up on a bramble leaf :

On Sunday I also went to Magpie Bridge, near Horrabridge where the Walkham river runs through this lovely valley.
It was a dark cloudy day so I thought I would capture some moving water with the help of my tripod under the canopy of trees.

The chestnut leaves turning above caught my eye and I stopped quickly to take them.
I found a nice viewpoint by the Walkham river by an old beech that had a lovely root system. I kept the tripod at ground level and moved around the scene a bit before I framed a nice shot at f11 with an exposure time of four seconds.

I will also include the colour version of this shot below, although I think the texture in the subject matter lends itself to a black and white conversion.
