    Default Autumn Leaves and Tawny Owl

    A bit late I know, but I saw the light shining through these leaves today and had to take the pic. The owl was in the same wood just a bit further down the path.

    I am especially fond of owls. It must have been a pleasant walk through the woods.

    Great photographs, I like both of them. Your bird watching is a unique and you have a really sharp eye.
    I was afraid that this year the autumn is only in Slovenia...miss some more photos

    This is a view of New Brighton shoreline one day last week. Liverpool docklands are in the distance. This is actually three photos merged to create the panorama. A rather stormy Autumn day.

    Impressive photo of 'the raging sea'. I miss the watching the storms come in on the Oregon coast. Those days would be so gray that only a black and white picture could do this kind of seascape justice.

    Autumn was disappointing in my area, Branka. Just didn't get the nice color change we had last year. I was glad to see your pics to help make up for it.

    absolutely brilliant. Manu bay in Raglan has some impressive storms too, and it was formed by a volcanic eruption some 500,000 years ago. The waves crash on the rocks with such force that rock fishing is permanently banned there. by the way, the only owl we have is the ruru( big eyes), or morepork, and it litterally says "morepork" when it hoots.

    Very dramatic panoramic shot Steve. The B/W shot really heightens the drama.
