Saffron, the spice said to have more value than Gold. Kato (my Brother) grows it for kicks and it's taste great in rice dishes, and has been found to help eye sight. So I photographed his saffron after he had harvested it, the flowers were placed on firery Autumn blueberry leaves as a backdrop, damn wind is too high for my usual Autumn shots.
This is the Lane leading down to Lake Vyrnwy dam ( lower ) this location made me late for my Lake shots, but it was worth it. By the time i walked round to the lake it was already late so no more images this trip.
This picture is not about the tree's but those fiery copper golden brown leaves, the sun did it's end of day beaming from low down making the upper canopy glow, very few images are viable from the road traveled but this jumped out as i came round a bend in the road on my way to Lake Vyrnwy, had to turn round and shoot a few images.
This was my planned Autumn return trip to Waylands Smithy, and i was not disappointed. The weather cooperated, in that it was bright with little wind, which makes a change. The early Autumn leaves had already fallen, but it still looks fantastic. This year has had a large amount of rainfall, good for trees but not good for that Autumn show.
Traveling along the forest route to Waylands Smithy, I was stopped in my tracks by the Sun illuminating this long Avenue of Beech Trees, the fifty shades of Brown, was enough to make me set up my camera, in the center of the track, the blue sky seemed to rip the image down through the middle of the Avenue, while the Sun behind me gave me the fill in light I needed to balance the exposure. Overall this Image was one of my personal favorites for this year.
