Red Leaf

Picked up some leaves on a walk today, and also a twig with lichen, which I couldn’t scan as it bent too much, so I took some photographs, and will try and fit them together into an image. Liked the colours of the lichen against the black twig, am thinking of colours for my winter book. In the meantime, here is a leaf picked up on the same walk, did some work with magic wand and infill to get the background, maybe could have saved myself some time using a backing of black paper, but might have lost the radiance of the red.

Leaf Fall

aleaves

This year’s bright leaves fall over the curled and colour-leeched leaves of former years, on the path that I take up above the river. Up here the rowans and the wild cherries will soon have their brilliant autumn colouring. The geese are still massed on the river, Canada geees and greylag, intermingled with the ducks and swans.  I don’t know what the salmon fishermen make of them, as they are very close to the rowing boats near the weir.
