Autumn creeps upon  us
30-SEP-2009

Autumn creeps upon us

September has been a beautiful month here in Ireland. Mother Nature has smiled upon us, as if trying to
compensate for a disappointing summer. We've had warm sunny days with little rainfall, perfect for easing
us into the winter that lies ahead.
According to the Met Office, it's been the driest September since 2002 and a warm one too.
But the signs of autumn are everywhere. The leaves are starting to take on a palette of rich
hues, gold, copper, bronze, amber, rust, red.
Itching to use my new camera, I stopped at Ballymascanlon village on my way home at lunchtime
and took a few pictures of the Virginia Creeper. I'm still just using it on 'Program' mode as I need
to sit down and read the manual.
Thankfully, Pbase is slowly returning to normal but it will take me a few days to catch up on uploading
my images. Smugmug just isn't the same.

Awesome color harmony between the plant and the crappy wood.

We too we had the driest summer on record, and that after almost 3 months of ongoing rain. I had to water my lawn for the first time this year. And now it is cold, almost one month earlier than last year. Last year I WAS 800 KM north at this time, and it was warmer than here today.

Wonderful image with great color and composition. I'd say you're doing just great with the new camera too!

Your composition is just great with the red against the lovely peeling texture of the red paint.

I love this plant. One of the first to turn bright red. So nice that you found it next to that interesting texture. A wonderfully pleasing image!
