Autumn Leaves

There is something irresistable about deciduous trees in their autumn clothes. they bring vivid colour to a drab time of year, and the low winter light makes moments of remarkable beauty that bring grace to cold, wet, short days. One of the great things about never being without a camera around your neck is the chance to seize these fleeting moments. I took this frame on a street in York, UK, in November 2006, on my way to the railway station. This tree stands below the medieval city walls and the evening sun caught the leaves just-so. The framing was simple, I used telephoto to fill the frame with the subject matter, and the exposure was automatic. The picture was sharpened and the colour tweaked just a little.
