Autumn colours

We're having a stunning display of autumn colour this year and in between the rain storms we're getting beautifully still weather with amazing blue skies. Here are some photos from Colinton Dell, Water of Leith earlier today.

 I love how the fallen leaves make little islands in the mill lade above Redhall Mill.

 I love the colours of beech leaves at this time of year (above and below)

I've frequently blogged photos of the wonderful chandelier style catkins of the hornbeam tree, but this is the first time I've taken the photos from this angle.

I have never seen hornbeam catkins before Juliet - lovely. Beech leaves are my favourite at this time of the year - colourful and yet so durable that they look as though they will last throughout the winter.

The shot of the beech leaves is particularly lovely with the interplay of shadows!

Most of our leaves are on the ground. I will enjoy yours!
