Such beauty in your image and words, Seonaid. 🙂
Thank you, it was a wonderful moment in an ever shifting space. Those leaves will be gone now, taken by the high wind which swept Scotland a few days ago…..autumn has departed and winter has arrived 🙂
This is absolutely stunning. I love the way the light casts through the bars and the leaves. Stunning!
What a wonderful comment, thank you. It was the shadows and their drama which caught my eye….and then I saw the golden leaves. A perfect autumn moment caught!
A beautiful image and haiku. I love the way the golden colour of the leaves in echoed in golden reflections along the bottom of the railing.
Thanks Suzanne…..it was a lovely moment in time 🙂
So very very beautiful!
Thanks Fi, sometimes it really is worth pulling the car over, just to catch some photos! It’s been such a gorgeous bright dry November…….but now a grey December cloud has descended 🙂
Thank you, it’s a lovely little part of Edinburgh 🙂
There you go again … being crazy-creative. Nicely done, as usual. I really like the way, either purposefully or not, your shutter speed was just slow enough to capture the movements of the leaves – a nice touch which really makes the image. The perspective works well too … being a ground level makes us feel as if we’re flying right along. The glare of the sun too seems to add its own little bit of a push. All of these elements come together in a very satisfying way (for me at least). Thanks. D
Thank you David, I took quite a few shots until I caught the motion, without the whole image being blurred…..the light was just lovely that day. Of course I was crawling around on my knees, looking crazy and getting damp, as per usual!
Great imagery and photo, Seonaid. I just read in the comments where it is 🙂 I didn’t have time to get up Arthur’s Seat but I did my best.
Thanks Jo, can’t wait to see your images from Edinburgh 🙂
I love seeing places I know through someone else’s lens.
I loved the shots you took Jo, and my what a lot of Edinburgh you packed into your trip.
The warm golden light is so beautiful at this time of year 🙂
I love the beautiful words and photo!
Thanks Amy, it was one of those blindingly delicious light moments 🙂
Great eye for the unusual detail, great angle also capturing the long, low light of the sun.
Many thanks, I wanted to catch the light through the leaves, and just as I got them in focus a little gust would blow….and I would need to reframe and refocus! I lived the long shadow lines from the gate 🙂
A stunning capture!
Thanks Gilly, I was driving through Duddingston, and just had to park and jump out for a few shots….the light is so tempting at this time of year 🙂
A lovely light from the setting sun and the flying leaves, Seonaid 🙂
Thank you Hanna, it was taken in a lovely spot at the back of Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh. The gates lead into Duddingston Kirk, which looks out over a beautiful loch.
What an interesting and beautiful place. I looked it up on Google.
All the best,
Oh I do love this photo (and are you tired of my comments today?) I’ve had quite the visit to your blog 🙂
Thank you, and it’s been lovely to get so many lovely comments all in one day 🙂
There can never be too many comments!
