Last Touch of Autumn

Here is a collection of photos from the past few weeks at Ashridge, I can’t believe December is here already! A few trees are still hanging onto the last touches of autumn, it feels like winter is creeping ever closer though. I hope you enjoy the shots! 🙂

    • Ah I’m glad you have your favourites, I love the beech leaves against the sky too – one of the best trees for autumn colour, they’re just as stunning as liquidambar I think! Thank you Christine, pleased you enjoyed the photos 🙂 xx

  4. I loved your autumn photographs, but it’s kind of amazing comparing the weather between our two countries. I live about 10 degrees of latitude farther south than you, but it is snowy and wintry looking here. I guess the Gulf stream really does make a huge difference.

    • I’d love to come out and live in a different country, just to compare the plants and general nature and weather patterns – it would be fascinating! Thank you Deb, very glad you like the photos 😀 x

  5. Lovely images Becka.. While looking at these images I can’t believe how quickly time passes.. I feel like it was a few days ago when I was out taking photographs of Autumns changes. Over the past week we have had two mini snow storms so now all I see is white and shades of grey :-).

    I too hope that one day I can visit your country one day. Europe has such a deeper known history than what we have here in the states. My grandmother while living in England had visited Cornwall in her younger days and her families home in Swansea. I have a few photographs of Cornwall taken in the early seventies from her travels. I hope to one day be able to visit and show my children that side of their ancestry.

    • I know exactly what you mean, it seems like yesterday the trees were bursting with colour and now they are stripped bare. I’ve come to realise how lucky I am to live and have grown up in England, like you say it has such a deep history – I am proud to be British! I hope you do get the chance to show your kids their ancestry one day 🙂
      Thank you for taking the time to read and comment, I appreciate it 😀 x
