A short post from the garden

 

_DSC2774 Cercis Leaves on Water 2

I spent a few minutes today collecting fallen leaves beneath our Forest Pansy (Cercis Canadensis) to record the astonishing range of colours and colour combinations that the leaves of this elegant tree produce as the chlorophylls gradually dwindles through Autumn. I have been meaning to do this for the last four years but my timing was always out by a few days and the colours had mostly faded before I could get around to making a photograph. This year I managed to get my timing right.

I am a designer and photographer. I live with my wife and our two dogs in the Welsh Marches, a land full of history, legends, mountains, rivers and dragon's breath; a place where animism thrives. To our north are the Cambrian Mountains, the Elenydd, a vast plateau so ancient that its mountains now have the appearance of steeply rounded moorland hills; to the east is England; to the south stand the Black Mountains and in the west the Brecon Beacons rise around the twin summits of Pen y Fan and Corn Du, the highest mountain in West Wales.
