I have looked at autumn photos here before and never recalled seeing the leaf strewn avenues. I guess I see the leaves after the rain with the mud and the blah factor. On a detour on a not sunny but definitely not rainy day, equipped with camera and in the company of a friend who had come to visit me (and yay she was patient enough for me to stop a few times along the way!), I managed to find this... :-)
Morden Hall Park, more or less right on the London/Surrey border. October 25th 2012.
Canon 400d 17-85mm lens.
As is. Straight from camera.
