This photo was taken yesterday in central Gothenburg.
Another person also liked the sight of the first autumnal colours along the moat.
The tree that provides these early autumn leaves is a horse-chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum).

Good morning Gunnar,
This photographer must be the only person in Sweden who doesn't own a bright red jacket! Nevertheless, he certainly does "stand out" in the picture and he is perfectly placed in the frame too. Of course, his posture and his camera make us look to what he is viewing - the gorgeous changing colours of the leaves of the horse-chestnut tree and the moat below.
A beautiful photograph with lovely colours hinting at the end of summer and colder weather to come. Perfect exposure, lovely composition and exceptional details and sharpness.
P.S. I wonder if "Health and Safety" bedevils the Swedes as much as it does the British? I remember well that, when I was at school, we used to play "conkers" with dried horse-chestnuts on strings, trying to smash our opponents' chestnuts by swinging ours as hard as we could and with well-practised technique. But all that has now been stopped - far, far too dangerous for children nowadays!

A pleasant composition to celebrate the beginning of autumn. The photographer is well placed in the frame and brings a touch of vitality to the scene. Lovely fresh looking tones and excellent clarity. Thanks for sharing.

Photographer in action, is sensitive to the magnificent colors that herald the imminent arrival of autumn. The picture quality is excellent. This is very well seen. Bravo.
Have a nice day

a well composed shot with the photographer perfectly placed to anchor the image. I'm not sure that I am rady to welcome autumn yet as summer has hardly been to Scotland.
Nb The fruit of the horse chestnut are called conkers here. Once upon a time childen would bore a hole through them, thread a string and swing these against other children's conkers to see who could smash the other.

Väldigt skir och vacker grönska med begynnande höstrodnad. Utomordentlig skärpa och kjusbehandling. Inte att undra på att fler var intresserade av att ta bilder här.
Trevlig semester, vi hörs i oktober.

I wish the colors of autumn will start showing up in Southern Nevada but it's still too hot for that. Nice capture of this photographer enjoying the colors. Great pov and dof with nice details. Good lighting and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

good shot and caught scene. Nice view, begin of autumn in the park. Image is well composed. Fine colours, too.
Have a nice evening.

It is quite remarkable how many people have digital cameras. We went to the falls at Aysgarth and found it almost impossible to get a photograph without other photographers in shot. However, sometimes the photographers make a pleasing and interesting focal point and I think this is the case in this shot. The photographer is strongly positioned and produces a direction for us, as viewers, to follow. You have a good f/g triangle a nd a fine dof.
I think the tree is probably a horsechestnut. I have noticed around my home that they are always the first to show signs of autumn.
My warm regards,

es ist immer lustig, andere Fotografen zu beobachten. Wie unglaublich viele immer gleiche Herbstlaub-Fotos mag es schon geben? Jeder, der eine Kamera hat, macht jedes Jahr mindestens eins. Du hast dem alten Thema "Herbstfarben" eine etwas andere Variante hinzugefügt.

autumn is indeed fast approaching. But the season offers the finest colors which are also appreciated by this unknown photographer.
The image is very well composed and the natural colors are a pleasure for the viewer's eyes as well. My compliments!

Beautiful scene, a photographer at work is fascinating for another photographers, well seen, great job

En väldigt påpassligt tagen bild. Fotografen är perfekt placerad och du har verkligen fångat hans koncentration på motivet. Han märkte nog inte ett dugg.Din vinkel är också suverän när det gäller höstlöven han fotograferar. De framträder klart och tydligt mot bakgrunden. Tack för titten och ha en bra kväll!

J'aime beaucoup ce vert lumineux avec les branches aux couleurs d'un début d'automne, le coin d'eau et le photographe pour compléter la composition, qui est trčs jolie

People are excited about the upcoming autumn season. On this picture, colorful leaves mix with very green surrounding, it's beautiful.

Another wonderful shot! So clear and sharp image.
His serious attitude can be trasmitted through his back. Great daylight you catch. Thank you for your sharing with nice shot and have a good day!

First autumn colours trigger all photographers to go out into the nature to shoot. Adding the other photographer in action into the perfect place give extra interest and life. Lovely colours and excellent sharpness. Our first signs of yellow leaves appeared already a little more then two weeks earlier.
