Rivers of Autumn Leaves



I love how these leaves have formed miniature islands in the mill lade

Water of Leith and Redhall Mill lade

That is a beautiful sight! I had been to Edinburgh and is very beautiful city.

Leora said...

What a lovely series of fall leaves.

I really like these photos of floating leaves. You've captured the swirl of the water beautifully.

Autumn leaves in rivers and streams equal magic for the photographer as you've proven here. Like Kusum, love Edinburgh--well all of Scotland actually.

I can almost hear the sound of the water splashing along!

I love the way the leaves take up shapes of their own Juliet. They are everywhere here too. I don't know that word 'lade' - what does it mean please?

Tricia Hays said...

Is that not extraordinary how they've come together like that?! WoW! How'd the flowing of the water squash them together like in the last image?
Beautiful, for sure!

Thanks so much for joining =)

That first shot has a magical fairytale look to it. :)
LOVE the last shot of the leaf islands and the swirls in the water!

Autumn is floating down the river...nice shots

You expect to see the colorful leaves on the ground, not so many in the water. I love the way the leaves have stacked up in the last photo.

Thanks everyone! Weaver, the mill lade is the mill stream going into the mill, while the mill race is the mill stream coming back out from the mill. (There's a chance I've got the words the wrong way round....)

Lovely images! The last shot is my favorite. Have a happy weekend!

They sure add to the magic of the flowing water.

Pictures remind me - when you walk the river there as part of the patrol, is there a regular foot path with easy visibility of the river? Or what is it like?

Most of our local rivers and streams have forested banks with not a lot of stream side walking paths. When we go along a stream or river to survey for spawning salmon we usually have to bushwhack or wade in the stream.

I am loving the autumn display at the moment. I have been cycling along footpaths strewn in yellow autumn leaves (I should really find out what tree they are from).

Crafty Green Poet said...

Rabbits' Guy - that's a goof question and I should do a blog post about it! There's an excellent footpath along the river (though at the moment parts of it are shut off due to flood prevention works) but there hasn't always been one....

Lovely water shots!

Carver said...

There's something very beautiful about autumn leaves swept up in the river. Good shots.

Caroline Gill said...

Beautiful photography ... the leaves remind me of those dolls/puppets people used to make when I was a child with one circle/hexagon of material on top of another on top of another ...

Loredana Donovan said...

Beautiful! I love how the leaves just flow with the water, nice movement to your images. Thank you for visiting my blog :)

You showed the simple beauty of leaves in fast running water..I wonder why leaves always stick together....Nice to have you in Nature Notes Juliet... Michelle

I've always liked to make little mental stories about the miniature worlds in places like puddles or streams...lovely pictures.
