Yesterday's picture on my blog was taken several days ago in bright sunlight. Not long afterwards the cloud rolled in again, making views that included the sky rather unattractive. It was time to look closer to my feet and I came across this little grouping of bramble leaves in various stages of colour change. I felt they were a miniature representation of Autumn and the colours seemed particularly vibrant in the soft, even light.

I used my 70-300mm lens, which offers excellent magnification and allowed me to position my tripod far enough away from the suject to avoid accidentally moving it.
