Woodland - October

I have seen some beautiful gold and red coloured trees in the countryside and when I went to the woodland last week I hoped to find some autumnal colour. Not really, not yet anyway.

The bracken has changed and is mostly brown now

and there are a few hazel leaves changing colour

giving the wood a pretty mottled lemon green appearance.

I know leaf colour is affected by many factors such as light level and moisture as well as the type of trees so perhaps here in the shady valley there will only be a gentle colour change.

There are plenty of leaves falling onto the ground and in the stream

and it might just be my imagination but I think the canopy is looking a little lighter than last month.
