Along the Lew Valley as in many areas the colours of Autumn grace the trees.
The more southerly of the two River Lew`s rises on the northwest corner of Dartmoor, near Sourton, and flows west and somewhat south, through the Lew Valley past Lewtrenchard and south of Lewdown before joining the River Lyd near Marystow. It has in earlier times also been known as Lew Water.

This is a lovely pastorale. The presence of the person, enjoying the scenery, is an essential ingredient. THe composition is like a stage, yet the feel is very natural. Reminiscent of 19th century romanticism, and timeless at the same time. Great shot.

Good evening Leslie,
beautiful country scene, that only the English countryside, knows how to give, where the slightest ray of sunshine lights up the fall colors.
Very nice composition, using natural elements to frame the scene.

Hi Leslie. Enchanting, showing the beauty of the English countryside.The light is expertly managed. All we need is a poem by Wordsworth.My compliments on this gem. Best wishes. Klaudio.

This one seems like a painting! The tonalities of the trees, the light,the person and the fence in foreground. A really nice autumn photo!
tyro (13065) 2011-11-07 16:09
Like a window on nature - wonderful! As though you have just walked through a long forest path and all of a sudden you come to this fence and this vista opens up before you.
Beautiful colours, perfect lighting and exposure and, as usual, perfect sharpness and detail. The addition of an onlooker in the picture carries the viewer's eye into the distance. Could that onlooker possibly be a photographer with a Minolta Dimage Z3?
P.S. This has got to go into my favourites.

Cette photo est tellement belle, une belle scène pastorale. On croirait presque un beau film d'animation, tel Babe :)
La lumière est superbe, et les gros arbres créent un cadre naturel qui ouvre une fenêtre sur ce beau paysage.

Good Morning Leslie - What a cleverly composed shot. The dark trees and FG make a super frame for the autumn view beyond. The light is attractive and well managed; subtle detail in the FG shadows. The figure is an essential ingredient, encouraging us to look deeply into the landscape. Very well done. Warm regards Rosemary

it looks as a painting and I love this moody picture, full of nostalgia.
All the best.
snunney (67292) 2011-11-08 2:36
A well presented composition with a slightly ethereal atmosphere. The exposure is very well managed and the watcher is nicely placed in the frame. It has the feeling of looking at a painting in an art gallery. Excellent work.

Un piacevole affacciarsi alla natura.
La cornice naturale si fonde con quella fotografica di impaginazione aumentando l'effetto.
Un momento di voler emulare affacciandosi.
Un autunno inglese da stampa antica per un salotto buono .
