Technically this should have been part one as it was taken a week or so before my recent green in the autumn post.
I was on a local back road looking for autumn colour one evening recently. I found the autumn colour disappointing and the sunset wasn’t developing but I liked the way the low sun was backlighting these leaves.
The shot was taken in a memorial forest. An area that is being replanted with native trees, each in memory of a loved one. There are three in the area.
Sunday morning of week 31 saw me returning from the sunrise at Colpoy’s Bay when I spotted two Sandhill Cranes (Antigone canadensis) in a hay field.
The sun was still low in the sky and behind the birds providing some interesting lighting. There was still round bales in the field so I spent some time waiting for one or the other to appear from behind a bale. At on point the two birds started calling to each other but one of the birds was mostly hidden behind a bale at the time.
