I haven’t had as much time to go out and take photographs recently so when I do have some spare time I endeavour to try and get out and about with the camera.
I had a day off yesterday and was looking forward to getting out; the only snag was the weather: heavy showers and short bright spells. I was itching to get out, so inbetween showers grabbed the camera and went out for a walk. I was marching along the footpath next to the field where I photographed the Barley back in Spring-Summer when I turned around and noticed these trees – which I think are hornbeams – looking rather beautiful especially against the darkening sky. The yellow looked so intense and lovely.
I took a few photographs of them and then decided to walk on before realising that the threatening sky would be bringing heavy rain before long. Needless to say, the rain came and I got soaked and could be found sheltering under these trees a few minutes later! I was glad that I went out at that time though as the light was pretty wonderful.
