My Sunday Photo

This week has seen us collecting lots of Autumnal things from our walks including these rich shiny conkers, and I just couldn’t resist setting some up for a photo, for a bit of practice with different apertures on my camera.  It is something special for children to collect conkers up and bring them home like little jewels, and it always signifies to me that Autumn is well and truly here.

Bring on the warm coats, fluffy blankets and mugs of hot chocolate, even though the sun is shining today, there is a chill in the air that tells me the seasons have changed.  I  do love Autumn but am really hoping it doesn’t bring us too much really cold weather.

    I like how you've styled it, very arty and captured Autumn very succinctly.

    Great photo, I have literally hundreds of conkers at home and have no idea what to do with them!!!!! I`ve heard they are god to put on windowsills to keep spiders out??

    Very nicely composed image πŸ™‚ I keep collecting them…they don't totally eliminate the dreaded s*****s but they reduce the numbers!

      It's a new fact that I have just stumbled across so I will be putting them outside the front and back doors! πŸ™‚
