Chasing the Colours of Autumn

This weekend I wanted to follow the autumn colour, to capture the golds and yellows and coppers in the woodlands, to walk on crisp fallen leaves along the ancient forest park, to fill up my memory card with beautiful images and feast my eyes on the countryside in her patchwork of autumn colours.
A slight case of the sniffles put paid to my plans so instead I found some colour at the Flower Market and the quiet country roads close to home.
With our mountain walk to Slieve Gullion cancelled, we drove around Ravensdale instead and visited
the old 'waterworks' which once provided water for the town at Annaskeagh instead. A colleague had said it would be a nice spot to get some photographs and he was right.

  1. Gorgeous photos, I love the autumn colours around us at the moment.

  2. Nothing like an Irish sky! There's that lovely light again...looks like a gorgeous place to ramble.

  3. Beautiful mums, pumpkins, gourds and autumn leaves. Your "Tippings Wood" is so similar to our hills here in California...the color is changing too.
    When your sniffles go away I would love to see photos of "the ancient forest park".
    Take care.

  4. O how lovely but especially the last shot with the pinkish tinge in the sky, great capture:~)

  5. Thank You for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I hope that the sniffles will soon be gone! Love the last photo with the reflection of the trees and the clouds in the water.

  6. Thanks to everyone for their kind comments. Luckily my sniffles didn't materialise into anything worse so I'm looking
    forward to getting out and about with my camera at the weekend.


Thank you for visiting. I appreciate your comments and messages
