Had a lovely walk from Balmacara up the forest road to the waterfall and then back down through the Coille Mhór oak-birch wood While most of the trees have shed their leaves already the oaks are clinging on to them providing some lovely late autumn colour. The three trees in the above shot are favourites of mine and today the brilliant blue sky provided a fabulous backdrop for their golden leaves. The following shot was taken looking across what we refer to as The Reserve, which is a heavily rush infested wet pasture, looking towards Carn Thollaidh, again with the spectacularly blue sky as a backdrop. The final image is of an old oak situated beside the main access track looking south towards Kylerhea. This one was a little back-lit by the low sun so I did use three auto-bracketed shots which I then combined with the HDR merge tool in Lightroom to maintain the detail that as visible to the naked eye and avoid silhouetting the tree.
