Autumn's Fire burns slowly... by 

“Now Autumn’s fire burns slowly along the woods and day by day the dead leaves fall and melt.”

William Allingham
Irish Poet
(1821 to 1889)

A late autumn return to my favourite ‘Eyot’ (river island) on the Lower Dart river, below Buckfastleigh in south Devon, UK.

Pentax K-X
Pentax 18-55mm SMC/ DAL lens (at 18mm)

Pseudo-HDR from 3 split-RAW processed 16-bit TIFFs (at -2, 0, +2 ev equivalents) in Photomatix Pro 3.26 and finished in Adobe Photoshop 6.0

An emerging landscape photographer based in Totnes, South Devon, UK – Phil Hemsley (a.k.a. ‘Morpheus71’ – from his graffiti days) is incredibly lucky to live between stunning beaches and fantastic moorland – he loves walking in the moors, climbing the cliffs and catching waves.

He is passionate about using visual imagery to capture the emotions, atmosphere and action of his subjects. His highly detailed work reflects his passion for rich light, colour and contrasting textures.
