Leaves of Fall

Took a walk thru University Parks to get away from the constant noise of the leaf blower at my apartment. Ended up taking a few photos of leaves, but in a much more peaceful environment.

Rollright Stones

Although I've been there two or three times, I don't believe I've ever posted photos of the Rollright Stones. Much much smaller than the Avebury Circle, and the stones are mere pebbles compared to Stonehenge, the Rollrights are still interesting. We've stopped by on occasion along the way to other attractions in the Cotswolds. The Rollrights are very rough stones with lots of lichens on them. Every time I've visited, only a couple other people were there. Here are some photos from when we stopped by a couple months ago.

Fall Along the Canal

Beautiful day for a walk along the canal. When I positioned myself to take the photo of the long boat and canal, out of the corner of my eye I saw the kingfisher fly by. Luckily my 2x was on, so I had an effective 400mm reach and ended up with a few decent shots. He's not real good at sitting still or hanging around.
