I've been using every opportunity to photograph the trees in my neighbourhood this autumn and I've become somewhat obsessed and fascinated by the slow decay of the leaves as fall becomes winter. I was out for a walk this morning after been away from my usual route for a few days and I was amazed by the difference. While the leaves had been more and more sparse, now they are more or less completely gone. It's amazing what can happen in the space of a few days.
But I've always found bare trees serenely beautiful though. And so I guess winter is well and truly here then.
For those interested in the technical details, these were all taken with a fuji X100 and processed in Aperture using the excellent VSCO film presets.
