Autumn Begins

Jena and I both happened to have an afternoon free yesterday, so she suggested that we visited Winkworth Arboretum in Surrey. The autumnal colours are just beginning, and look especially vibrant this year compared to the dullness of yesteryear.    Winkworth Arboretum is a splendid place to roam around and admire the countless species of trees and plant life, as well as to capture some of the seasonal shades. The weather was a little overcast during our visit, so we focused our compositions on leaves and plants to really study the colours. I also used Jena herself as a subject, as she is very photogenic.   These shots below from me were taken with either the Nikkor 18-200mm VR or the 50mm AF-S F/1.8G. You can probably differentiate between them from the quality of background blur, the latter lens giving the smoother result.   I hope you enjoy these images and are inspired to seek out and capture some autumnal foliage yourself.

Taken at F/1.8, still pretty sharp.

You have a beautiful series of images here. We have yet to visit Winkworth as it is quite a trek for us. But it is on our wish list for next week!
