The narrow country road between Chillaton and North Ground is used only by a few locals hence the leaves lining the road .

This is a very nice autumn view from a little travelled road. Nobody at all seems to have used the narrow road going up the hill for a long time. The gate is locked and the ground looks like it's covered with a thick layer of dry leaves. The trees still show a wonderful variety of colours even in mid-November. This photo reminds me very much of a 19th century painting, one that could keep my attention for a long time in a museum.

What a lovely little gem of a road - I can imagine that you could wander around these parts for hours wth a camera and find hundreds of beautiful shots.
Your composition here is excellent and I suspect you made a good choice by excluding the sky which might well have been overly bright and uninteresting. The lead-in fom the road is perfect and the little clump of trees at the fork in the road is perfectly placed. But the light here is perfect even if (as is evident from your exif data) it was quite dull at the time. The lovely soft light has really brought out the gorgeous warm autumnal shades of the leaves too.
Gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness.

Good Morning Les,
An irresistible lead takes us through the warm colours of autumn, with its associated carpet of colourful leaves. The composition is perfect; the textures, almost palpable, enhance the experience.
Have a lovely day,

I like the point of view very much with the closed gate on the right helping draw the viewer up the track. A superb blend of autumn colours beautifully lit. A fine place for an afternoon walk drawing in the atmosphere and listening to the birds.

A lovely painting-like photograph of a very charming place! I'd surely accept an invitation for a calm walk along that path! Those autumn colors are wonderful!
Sharpness, management of light, horizontal format, black & white borders, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,

Great feeling of isolation you've captured here, Leslie. You can feel the thickness of the forest through the shot, and the old road is a great lead-in. Nicely lit with strong color.
