Lovely photo, Roger. What a great time of the year. I remember the smells in Autumn also. Just read that Haigh woodland is now owned by the Woodland Trust.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 6th November 2012 at 09:46
Yes Janice you are so lucky to have this glorious place on your doorstep. Being on the other side of the world and unable to get back to these places, it is so good to see these pictures that keep us expats up with what is going on. Thankyou to all the mad camera clickers!!! A big cheers to you all x

Roger,That is a lovely sight for sore eyes...and the composition is great.


Comment by Janice on 6th November 2012 at 12:28
Well Fred! You surprise me! What floats your boat then or are you generally one of lifes bored?


Comment by Ron D on 6th November 2012 at 13:23
I Would say the sun is coming over the photographer's right shoulder .and not taken into the sun. But that does not stop it being a pleasant picture.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 6th November 2012 at 16:37
Janice, I think Fred is fed up with photo`s taken in Haigh Country Park of which there`s been many.
Fred Mason, please tell us who Woodland Trust are.


Comment by Mick on 6th November 2012 at 16:50
The Woodland Trust are going to start thinning out all those overgrown rhododendron like they have done in the Rivington Japanese gardens.


Comment by Fred Mason on 6th November 2012 at 16:52
Yup, Don't know who this Fred is, but must be a sad case if he finds this photo boring...


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 6th November 2012 at 17:39
