Autumn has certainly gripped London. In fact, it’s almost winter, what a depressing thought.
Autumn is not all dull and gloom though because with Autumn comes a beautiful pallete of reds, golds and russets as London parks put on their final show before winter bites.
At 6am on Saturday morning, yes folks 6am, the morning after friday night, I braved the outdoors and drove down to Richmond park with my mate, Bryce, to snap some shots with our Canon SLRs. 2 degrees it said on the car themometer and 2 degrees it was. My hands could have been used for the Dulux colour card for colours violet to blue.
A misty dark sky, followed by a beautiful bright sunrise and then a frosty blue sky was our backdrop on which to shoot fallen leaves, conker shells, and nervous deer.
It was a great learning experience on how to capture a wide range of colours using my 350d. I still definitely have a lot to learn, but one step at a time.
Who needs CSS galleries for creative inspiration when the season is Autumn. View the full set of photos here (well the few I think are worthy of my Flickr account at least).
Nope that’s not a photoshop lens flare, it’s the real thing.
