A double exposure of the Hazel tree in our garden, with the beautiful bright yellow leaves that it has in autumn; 17 Nov 2008.

This wonderful tree has threatened to take over the garden more than once and I’ve had to quite severely cut it back.  It does of course produce good nuts, but we always loose them – quite happily it must be said – to the Grey Squirrels.

This photo is used as an eye-catcher on this blog’s front page.

Nikon F6 with 24mm-120mm VR Nikkor at 120mm; Fuji Provia 400 colour slide rated at 500 ISO; the camera was moved slightly between the two exposures.

        That’s kind. That would be lovely: thanks.

        I noticed the other day that I seem to have the beginnings of a hazel copse in one of my borders in the garden. They really seem to grow well on dry chalk.

          You’re on the chalk – wonderful! I say that, I suppose, as a geologist, and also as a result of my love for SW England and its landscapes and rocks.

          The jpeg will be on its way in a few moments – ENJOY!!! A

      Thanks, Gemma, glad you like it! Its the beauty of natural things, its all around us, and looking at it – whether I end up photographing it or not – positively does me good!

      I have, and have probably always had, pagan tendencies – I feel close to natural things, I love looking at them, I love keeping my finger on the pulse of what they’re doing if only in a broad sense. And if I can bring across some of their beauty in my photos, I’m doubly happy!

      Thanks for your kind words! Hope you’re both fine! Adrian
