Haigh Plantations Autumn Colour

Three reasons why I really enjoyed this trip out to the Haigh Plantations:

1. I had my wonderful sister with me!
2. I had my new Fuji X-T2 camera for its first outing!
3. It's one of my favourite locations for Nature Photography!

Three Sisters Recreation Area

I went to find Autumn colour on a cloudy, grey day, and this area near Ashton didn't let me down!

Plenty of Autumn colours in the trees and bold wildlife looking for treats!

Fuji X-E2 with 18mm, 35mm and 55-200mm Fuji lenses.

Billinge Plantation, a Woodland Trust area.

I only discovered this local site last year, so decided to visit just as Autumn is approaching to catch the change.

It was an extremely windy afternoon with acorns and branches flying about, so my visit was shorter than planned!

I used my Fuji X-T1 with two manual lenses, a lovely old Asahi 50mm and a Samyang 12mm.

Long Wall Wood Sunset, Winstanley

With the promise of another clear Sunset, I went to the local Wood known as 'Long Wall', part of the Winstanley Estate, and originally completely surrounded by a boundary wall, hence the name!

The Sun was very low but created good shadows at the highest part of the Wood still exposed.

Here are the results!

Billinge Beacon Sunset

Thanks to the clear skies and the promise of a good Sunset, I went to Billinge Beacon to see what images I could make.
It did indeed turn into a stunner, so here are the results!

Fuji X-E2, 10-24mm and 55-200mm Fuji lenses.
