Autumn Colour On The Hillside

Autumn colour on Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England. The hill is the southern end of a sandstone ridge sticking out of the Cheshire plain.

On a clear day you can see central Liverpool. The group of Silver Birch trees on top of the hill are on the site of an Iron Age hill fort known as Maiden Castle.

A photo from my archives, originally it was going to be a Throwback Thursday post. Instead it is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Hillside.

Past Squares #15

Light on the tops of Silver Birch trees

Sunlight on the Tree Tops

Low sun illuminating the tops of Silver Birch trees on Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England. I like the gradation of light to dark down the frame.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was a post in Top Squares Month and is my day 15 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

One Word Sunday

Vertiginous

This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday prompt Vertiginous.

I had a couple of ideas for the prompt before remembering this photo. Taken approximately 30 years ago, I’m looking over a sandstone escarpment down on the Cheshire plain below. The slope is so steep it used to form the defensive edge of an Iron Age hill fort.

Early snow on southern Cheshire

Throwback Thursday travels back to southern Cheshire and an autumn in the early 1990s.

An early snowfall had partially covered the landscape with the autumn leaves of the Silver Birch trees standing out against the snow.

A Solitary Conifer

Throwback Thursday travels back to Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England in the mid 1990s.

I noticed the tall, blue green conifer sticking out of the surrounding Silver Birch trees and isolated it with a telephoto lens.

Telephoto Perspective 3

This is my day 26 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective and the third of my telephoto perspective series.

Looking Down on Silver Birch trees in snow from the top of Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England. I was isolating interesting sections of the trees with a telephoto lens.
