You will remember that only a few posts ago I was ranting on about how thoroughly cheesed off I was with autumnal photography……Sick Sick Sick of it!…To hear me chuntering on you’d think the only good leaf was a green leaf and anyone shooting reds and golds should be propped against a wall and shot..first in the extremities causing maximum pain but minimal blood loss and thus ensuring a slow and agonizing expiration…….What a nasty piece of work I am..
Especially when you consider, after only the shortest time, I simply forget all about it and subject you all to todays autumnal onslaught..
I Know! I’m a bit of a git! But at least I’m consistently a bit of a git…….
Anyway, enough self analysis…You’re here for pictures right?

The day was extremely overcast and (being an idling lackadaisy as well as being a git) I was not carrying my tripod which necessitated upping the iso and dropping the shutter speed a little more than I would normally like, (I was handholding at a fifteenth of a second)….So a little grainy and woolly, but, given that I went purely for a walk and actually didnt intend to shoot at all, I reckon I can live with the outcome.
(It’s funny…I’ve noticed I can handhold at much slower shutter speeds when I have a hangover…??…Explanations on a postcard please).
