I enjoy taking photos, and writing. I live at the southern tip of the foothills of the Peak District (think Derby, central England). I had a Nikon D80 with various lenses (now a Sony NEX5N, a dog who tries hard to get into every photo and two lovely daughters :)

    beautiful autumn shot… great colours and composition!

  • Thanks Julie! I drove by the road on the way to some errand and as I lookedin my rear view mirror decided I needed to turn around and get my camera! I then spent 15 minutes taking every conceivable shot to ensure I caught the moment – then had that tricky phase of deciding which one was the best! Thanks again.

    Is this trick photography Mark…In the Land of OZ..We never thought the sun did shine in Derbyshire…or anywhere in the UK as far as we knew…But BIG congrats from this endangered tropical plant…Far too much sun you see Mark.

  • Thanks! And to be fair iAN it does feel as if we’ve hardly had any sun for a couple of weeks. I find myself becoming quite envious of fellow photographers who seem to be able to take an endless of supply of photos where quite clearly there is sunshine every day! In this case as I posted above I was out in the car, caught the subject in my rear view mirror and rushed back to get my camera..PS This photo was taken last autumn, as the leaves haven’t turned this year yet.
