Autumn Leaves

Sun 12 Oct
Sheffield Park

Quite simply the most stunning display I've ever seen. A glorious late summer's day, warm enough to sit on the grass, eat your sandwiches and bask. And leaves beginning to turn, with the low Autumn sun coming through almost horizontal but still strong enough to intensify all the colours and point up the shadows.

Thousands of awestruck visitors, wandering slowly through the park, mostly speechless, often motionless, just standing, gazing in wonder.

And the highest concentration of cameras per head on earth, from pros with tripods, telescopics and lens-hoods to grannies with mobile phones - so there'll be tons up on Flickr by now. So here's 114 more: set 1, set 2, set 3, set 4.

And if you fancy something in a completely different mode, here's Javier Paxariño playing the tune with students from the Salamanca Music Conservatory, earlier this year.
