London Falling

It is impressive how much colour our local park in West London produces.  I don't just mean today's warm rainbow of autumn shades, but more the colours throughout the years.  I've had the opportunity of taking silver shots of frosty grass, heavenly greens in the height of summer, brilliant white when snow covered the ground and branches, and more recently infrared shots of the rich foliage which resulted in a wonderful ghostly feel.  Autumn is by far my favourite look with all the colours imaginable and the green stubbornly there in the form of grass if in nothing else.  The air is fresh and cool which makes the perfect combination of weather and sights for lovely walks.

The squirrels were hard at work hopping through the leaves but rocketing up the trees every time I got close.  I wasn't there for them.  The colours of the fallen leaves were rich and loud ranging from a firey red to a bright yellow - and this is what I was there to capture.

Nature's beauty. I can't believe that leaves can look this good.

I can never get enough of the parks in London! Our parks need some major work, we could make them so much better then they are now!

Leaves! I love taking pictures of them too. These are great!

These shots were taken in London? Where exactly? And for a thought, I love your shots but I'll appreciate them more if you were able to capture the squirrels.

onlooker:
I can still hear the crunching when I see the pics. Thanks :)

Hugh:
They do don't they? They are even more mesmerising a little later in the season.

Marzouq:
We need to start with having less concrete in ours and very simple maintenance - which is nonexistent today.

Vivian Kendricks:
Thank you.

reinaelliston:
Yes. In a West London park (Gunnersbury). It was pretty much the scene in any of the London parks at the time. Sorry about the squirrels. I only had a small camera which didn't allow quality zoom snaps.
