Native European trees don't have the same pigments as the North American varieties, so there are no flaming reds - unless some have been planted in landscaped parks and gardens. Still, on a brightish day the orangy-browns can still have an amazing light to them. Here are a few that I have taken over the past few weeks around the village where I live. I have not done a very good job on the more recent ones, taken with my new D50 - the light was just too low and I couldn't get a fast enough shutter speed so they are a little soft. I would really appreciate your comments though :blushing:. Little digicam: #1 #2 #3 - there were better spots than this to get this shot, but I was in mortal fear of getting knocked down, I didn't want to go too far from my car, and this was the only spot near a ditch big enough to stop in : D50: #4 - if you look closely there are 2 crows in this shot :greenpbl: #5 #6 #7 - this is embarrassingly shaky :blushing: but I really liked the leaves on the path as well as on the trees. The sun came out again yesterday, after a few dull and rainy weeks, but most of the leaves are gone now so I won't be able to get these chances again until next year. Many thanks for looking .
