New Day Dawning

A beautiful start to today.. The view from my window in Charlton Down at sunrise.

Leaf Fall – Field Maple

Mostly Field Maple leaves on the ground in the nature reserve at Charlton Down, Dorset, 23 November 2021.

Leaf Fall – Mostly Beech

Carpets of mostly beech leaves rustle underfoot where the low sun highlights their copper colour and reflects on coverings of dew drops, near Greenwood House in Charlton Down, Dorset, 24 November 2021.

November oak Leaves

There are still a few leaves on the oak trees in the village, looking bright on this cold and sunny morning. The curious patterns are caused by the insect galls that affected the leaves.
