Coppiced elegance

Sunday at Burnham, the last of this series. The old coppiced beech trees vary through strange and spooky to rather elegant, here she proudly displays her autumn gown

It's like the curving branches of the tree are dancing for joy with the Autumn colours.

This beautiful image is helped by the bed of brown leaves on the ground as well as the fiery foliage

Pure bliss, John. No wonder this is my favorite season!

[By the way, I did get the PowerShot camera while in America a couple weeks ago, and have been "testing" it on SC these days. I wonder if you've been using yours???]
John Prior: Not very much really, I prefer the image quality that big sensors provide for my favourite subjects. But If I need longer reach it is handy, if I can remember to keep the batteries charged.
J'adorerai me promener dans ces bois. Cet arbre semble prêt à bouger !

The browns of the ferns really set off the golds. Wonderful series, John.
This is certainly a grand old tree John.
