Shades of Autumn – green

I heard about a weekly photo challenge a few weeks back focusing on the shades of autumn and thought I’d give it ago. The first colour is green. This first photo was my initial thought – a box of apples I was given from someones apple tree.

Then last weekend we went walking in the woods and I took this photo which I loved so this is my actual photo for green. I just love the light shining through the trees. It was a glorious day. We were experiencing a very late heat wave (it has passed now and it is back to grey, wet and cold). It was very strange to be walking through the autumn leaves on the 1st October in shorts! We even had a BBQ that evening and stayed outside till nearly 8 in shorts and T-shirts (unheard of most of the summer months never mind in autumn).

Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge

I took quiet a few more photos that I love but I’m saving them for some of the other weeks of shades of autumn. The photo below is my favorite photo from the week because again I love the light in the photo but also the vibrant greens and the composition.
