Last week I took a trip over to Monks Wood in Cambridgeshire, it was designated a national nature reserve in 1953, and is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. It has been described as one of the best examples of ancient ash-oak woodland in the East Midlands.
I was in search of some autumn colour, there wasn't a great deal about, but I managed to find a bit, as you see.
The following images show what colour I could find in this attractive woodland. In part two we will have a closer look at the leaves and berries that adorn the trees.
|At the end of the day I got a few shots of the setting sun lighting up the woodland.|
|I couldn't resist turning this one into a little oil painting :)|
