A few photos from a trip to Glen Lyon in autumn. An ideal route for an afternoon walk-with-Dog took in 3 distinct kinds of woodland: artificial monoculture (spruce etc, clear barren ground) (fortunately being felled with a view to replacement with native trees), some birch and oak, and (another artificial) an avenue of beech trees.
A well-known waterfall (much taller than it looks in most photos) behind a packhorse bridge, Glen Lyon. The first of three very distinct kinds of woodland in my afternoon stroll around Glen Lyon – here boring monoculture looks tolerable with the sunlit bracken in the distance.
Very natural native flora basking in the golden light:
Bright sunligt behind oak leaves turning from green to yellow to orange. A mixture of trees, from mostly green to vibrant yellow and orange The way the bracken curls reminds me a bit of seahorses… Here catching the bright autumn light. A primary-colour scene: strong characterful branches of a large birch tree with yellow and green foliage against a bright blue sky. Fragments of birch tree branches in a sea of bright yellow foliage.
An avenue of beech trees looking quite spooky
The third kind of woodland on the afternoon’s stroll was another obvious man-made arrangement, but this time an avenue of beech trees, one of which looked quite spooky waving its branches around in the only patch of sunlight.
