A very common subject but I was struck by the reflected autumn colours. Image taken at the duck pond at the National Trust's Longshaw Estate in Derbyshire.

I took a 'detour' on my way into the office this morning, having seen some great recent images of the spectacular autumnal colours at Longshaw. I had to get wet feet to approach close enough to the duck pond to achieve something close to the composition I wanted. The images comprising this panoramic stitch were taken with me perched precariously on the second bar of a fence that runs towards the pond (the end of which I've cloned out of this image). The early sun on the turning leaves created a stunning show of colour and in post-processing I've actually reduced the contrast and saturation of the 'as-taken' RAW file. Other than the wet feet, the only other disappointment was that the stand of trees to the right of the image perfectly obscured Higger Tor.

A portrait of my youngest boy's much-loved pet rat, processed to achieve a high-key effect. I produced this so he could have an image of it after it was put to sleep recently.

Another image taken at Padley Gorge on Sunday when the gloom allowed me to use a 15 second shutter speed and the wind in the trees created a blur of autumn colours.

Another image from a morning walk on Big Moor a couple of weeks ago. If you look close there's the hint of a sparkle in the grass created by backlit droplets that had formed as the frost melted.
