This photo is straight from the camera, it’s AS IS!
This is another shot I took of the lovely cottage near to the village of Greesley in Watnall,Nottinghamshire, England. Just simply widening out the shot and pulling in the gate and old sign post, and more of the lovely autumnal colours crowning the trees and bushes to the left, the scene take on a whole new level of character. I love the lush green field next to the small Woodpit Cottage, and the warm sunlight from the late autumn sun low in the sky. There is a warmth to this lovely place which is why I so wanted to capture its essence. I could spend hours here, embraced by the fragrance of the countryside, and the wood burning fire.
The long shadows blanket creation.
The rabbits burrow back in their homes.
The hedgerows comfort the birds, snuggled in their nests
and the hedgehogs curled beneath the quilt of autumn leaves.
What warm glow remains now starts to fade
Whilst the moon begins its silvery keep through the night.
Autumn is now falling asleep for a long nap
For the morning will bring Winter’s watch.
