Autumn in the garden

In an effort to be more timely than I have recently (hello, 3 months of silence & belated posting), I thought I would share some photos from our garden recently. Autumn – in fact, winter now – is definitely upon us and there have been a good few days of blue skies and impressive colours. This has also been good for getting the new-ish macro lens out, although I am dependent on it not being too windy. It’s bad enough that I have to carefully time a macro shot as per my own, apparently in-built, sway, without Mother Nature joining in the game.

However, when she did make an appearance in bird-form, the 70-300mm lens was more appropriate.

300mm, 1/400 sec, f/8.0, ISO 1600

100mm, 1/400 sec, f/8.0, ISO 100

100mm, 1/160 sec, f/8.0, ISO 100

100mm, 1/160 sec, f/8.0, ISO 320

100mm, 1/200 sec, f/3.5, ISO 100

100mm, 1/125 sec, f/8.0, ISO 200

300mm, 1/500 sec, f/8.0, ISO 1000

100mm, 1/160 sec, f/8.0, ISO 200

100mm, 1/160 sec, f/7.1, ISO 800

100mm, 1/160 sec, f/8.0, ISO 1250

100mm, 1/160 sec, f/8.0, ISO 250

100mm, 1/125 sec, f/8.0, ISO 1600

300mm, 1/400 sec, f/8.0, ISO 1250

100mm, 1/160 sec, f/7.1, ISO 200

300mm, 1/400 sec, f/8.0, ISO 320

  1. I always love it when you can get some great shots on your front doorstep (the spider I photographed a couple of months ago was literally on my doorstep, in fact).

    My favourite of this set is the second one; I love the backlit colour of the leaves and the flare from the sun in the corner. In fact, I love most of the colourful leaf shots, you seem to have captured them just at the right time of the year when the colours are most vibrant. I love the holly shot too, although I suspect that my be due to a poorly worded contractual obligation, and the blackbird amongst the leaves shot is great too, just a shame her head is in shadow!

    • The spider post! I remember that one, mostly because I was jealous of your ability to get such a clean, crisp shot with the macro lens! I’m still working on keeping still enough.

      The birds were being buggers for keeping out of the light; do they think we have a cat who might see them or something??
