After missing last week’s CMMC, this week I’m back with some October colors for Cee’s challenge ๐Ÿ™‚

Despite a long dry summer, the Oak trees have a good crop of Acorns…

Acorns

…Many of them already fallen to earth where the Squirrels and Jays will gather them to store for Winter. The Acorns may be brown, but the leaves are still green.

Autum is favoured by some flowering plants – Michaelmas Daisies being one that is well known. But this year I’ve got some Japanese Anemones to share…

Autumn is a time for Fungi – I believe this is a member of the Omphalotus family…

The days grow shorter as we move into mid-October and if there is a Sunrise, it is often a watery one…

Autumn Sunrise

…but, in the middle of the day we can be treated to a glorious blue sky to contrast with the changing colors of the trees…

Ok – Brian gives us this challenge each month and sometimes I miss out because of… well, computing issues, life, errr, all sorts of silly things? I’m just glad that I stumbled across another entry to this challenge which reminded me to take part ๐Ÿ™‚ So for this month’s Last on Card from the Canon EOS 5D mkiii, I have, as ever, a football shot. It’s one of those end of a game shots that has nothing going on. Our player, Luke, has just knocked the ball back from the bye-line and the ref was about to blow time…

Last on the card from the Fujifilm X-Pro2 was a sunrise shot taken at dawn, early in the month. Sometimes finding time to do photography is hard – hopefully the new year will see the Fuji working a lot more:-) …

As usual, both shots are unaltered except for being resized for the internet.
