Autumnal beech trees

At last, the pervading greyness of November has been replaced with a clear days. Cold nights followed by bright sunny days. I walked in the woods to the small area of beech trees. Most of the woods around the village are commercial plantations of pine but beech trees were planted along the boundary banks many years ago and so lines of beech trees can still be seen.

Yesterday the leaf colour was perfect, yellows

greens and browns,

sometimes all on the same tree.

So pleased that these beautiful trees were left to grow along the boundaries and roadsides

so that we can enjoy the spectacular show of colour

in the autumn sunshine.

The trees with the leaves underneath are just gorgeous! I can only imagine how beautiful they are in person! The beauty nature shows forth always amazes me.
