Hello to all TN friends,
I like to dedicate this image of autumn to our friend Mr.Bob Shannon, for he had asked about the fall colouration here in NZ! This was captured yesterday at one of the orchard and now we are in the middle of Autumn and you will have a idea how some of the trees looks like in autumn!
also thank you all for viewing and hope you enjoy it too
Cheers to everyone!!

Hi Tony,

Looks like your summer has ended and autumn has arrived. Strange to see the one red tree while the rest are still nice and green. A beautiful scene with lovely colors.


merhaba Tony, my dear friend
I came back last night from field. sorry I couldnt visit your last. many thanks for your previous messages on my posts.
Spring goes to summer here, but it is in autumn in New Zeland. You present this beautiful season with characterictic colors. Great scene with beautiful colors and composition. Thanks for sharing, best wishes my friend

Hola Tony.
Colorful image My friend. We are at biging of summer here, and all the plants has a new reborn. TFS My good friend.

Oh my goodness..and yes I did ask...it was almost a rhetorical question but I am happy and surprised that you answered with an image...My many thanks to you. this is totally of interest, as I will more than likely not make it down there on this trip on Earth...but to see it through your eyes is a Blessing for me..Thanks ever so much Tony! It is unlike yet still like what I had imagined...well it is new so I need to grasp it from the other end!:-)

Hello Tony. Wonderful Bob will be happy looking at this image. Autumn is always so colorful and you have captured the tree on its sweet spot. Pleasant light and shadow and thanks for sharing. Best regards. Jusni

Hello Tony,

This image of yours will always be the reference for NZ Autumn for me. For us we have only two seasons Summer & Monsoon, this year we are yet to have summer, it has been raining most of the days.
Tfs, Regards

Bellissimo paesaggio di inizio autunno, eccellenti POV e DOF, composizione dal taglio perfetto, ottima nitidezza, meravigliosi i colori e il cielo. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hello Tony,

Beautiful coloured landscape.
the reds of the tree with the white clouds and blue sky are pretty to see.


Hi Tony,
Lovely colours and excellent composition.

Hi Tony

Lovely autumn colour - well composed shot with ricj=h colour and that wonderful NZ light!


Hello Tony,

This is a good and beautiful beginning of the Autumn in NZ. Wherever you are the autumn colours are everywhere the same. The contrast between some trees are amazing. One tree is the warm red/yellow colors and the others green. A very colourful shot Tony. Greetings and TFS BOB

Hi Tony,
Each of your landscape shots have captured the refreshing beauty of your side of the world.This one is no different.The riot of colours with the domninant green is quite a pleasing sight and a wonderful dedication to Bob who has had a great way with landscape shots.
Thanks for the share and Cheers:
P.S:Just wondering whether you exercised the Wide Angle option in your Canon?..I guess not...the result would have been different ...what do you say?

Hi my beloved friend Tony,
What a splendid landscape with vivid colours my friend!
Great composition.


Tony, this is a marvellous landscape with beautiful fall colours. The red tree against the blue sky looks just divine.
It feels strange up here in the northern hemisphere that you have moved into autumn now down under.
We, on the other hand, are getting roasted alive in the summer heat :-(.
Thanks for sharing this well composed image and best regards.

A fine tree in beautiful autumn foilage Tony, in nice contrast with all the greeneries around, against a richly clouded sky, altogether a superb piece of nature expertly captured and composed my friend. Thank you indeed!

You really have a talent with landscapes, it's incredible. This scene is very simple yet you captured something, it's the essence, the pov, I don't know, but it's beautiful! The colours are so bright and how strange it is to see fall arrive in another part of the world whereas we are just out of winter! hope you have nice weather in fall, it is such a fantastic season! Thank you Tony,


Hi Tony, lovely dedication to our friend Bob, beautiful tree with fantastic colors, wonderful autumnal composition, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Tony!

How fascinating our world is: you have commented my posting where I show the changing from the autumnal and winterly colours to those of spring and summer... while you present us exactly the same the other way round.

The coloured tree is fabulous, and I like the mix with the still green plants. It's warm and joyful, therefore it goes straight into the heart!

Kind regards

Hi Tony,isn't easy to us to imagine a situation like that in these days.eheheh..but an automn showing whit the colours of a master like you it's a great spectacle!This red tree in a blue sky is a wonderfull spectacle!Thanks for share and my best compliments from your italian friend,Luciano

Parece que repita siempre lo mismo, pero hay una serie de características (buenas) en tus fotografías que se repiten. El equilibrio de la toma es excelente y la luz sobresaliente, que junto con los contrastes de plantas y cielo dan como resultado un bello conjunto.
Un abrazo Tony.

Outstanding landscape shot with great colours and details. Superb natural illumination and the blue sky sets up a fabulous tone. The 'red' tree looks gorgeous and I like your chosen POV to portray this charming scene. Bob would be pleased and happy for sure. Very nicely composed. kudos.

Hello Tony,
I didn't know that trees in Aukland could turn into such fine autumn colours. I like the composition against the sky which together with the greenery make a fine splash of colour.
Thanks for sharing this fine tribute to our TN friend Bob Shannon.

Hi Tony.
What a great gift and dedication to our friend Bob. Pictured scene, colouration of the scenery are really amazing. I am excited. I also impressive with fantastic crisp sharpness of all even tiny parts of the scene. My hearty congratulations on such masterpiece.

Hallo Tony
A marvellous autumn scenery. I've only had the opportunity to see something like this two or three times. This is really beautiful. Spectacular view with awesome details and arrangement of colours. A really striking landscape captured and presented in a lovely manner. Impressive colours that highlight the beauty of autumn. A very special photo. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Hello Tony,
Autumn colours!! looks very tempting. Just look at those vibrant red leaves.Splash of colours and a beautiful light. That's what I felt most about this picture.
Thanks for the share,

Hi Tony,
Fantastic, colorful shot and great dedication to Bob. I always like to see such beautiful autumn photos, no matter which season we are actually in (it's summer here in Europe). As I see, leafs are coloring there, too, and the red tone strongly reminds me to our Acer pseudoplatanus.
An image to look at, very pleasant to the eyes. Bravo.
