Only just few days ago summer was here with blooming flowers, butterflies' colours and heat. Today I looked at calendar and what I saw? October... Month with brrrrrrrr in its name :-) Usually cold, rainy and dark. Good prelude for winter. But not today...

Today I woke up early and went to work. As almost always I walked via Poniatowski Park. Morning was beautifull. Very sunny but also misty. When I entered park I started to enjoy another nature's show. Sunrays and mist again. Very promising start of Golden Polish Autumn.

Hello Grzegorz,
Wow, this photo reminds me of my old home in Vermont. The fall colors and the low sun casting rays on the beautiful leaves. The tree in the shadows the misty morning air...beautiful photo and love the framing...TFS

Lovely moody shot Grzegzzy.
Look on the bright szide ... autumn is fungi season:)

Hi Grzegorz!

You had a nice start of the day and a good idea to capture this smooth atmosphere. The colors are superb, and the rays became visible due to the mist: that's autumn's magic!

Kind regards

Its magic, TFS.

Hi Grzegorz

A beautiful posting. It looks quite simple, but getting the exposure and timing right were, I think, very difficult - so a skillful shot.

Well composed with a fine deep and good details.
Beautiful work, my friend.

Hi Grzegorz.
I like your really art shot very much. You have selected subject for shooting perfectly as well as the pictured moment. Warm autumn sunbeams give the scenery especial charm. Excellent refined work. I would to mark only one point. It is strong cropping crown of a tree. My bets wishes and TFS.

I don't have anything to say except that I love your picture. The light, the pov, the colors... all excellent! Great shot.

Hi Grzegorz,
wonderful light management and light rays

Hello Grzegorz,
If we accept the man-made and tended park environment then this is a fine autumnal study in the kind of light that we experience here in the north now. Beautiful composition of the beech tree and lighting. I can understand one being inspired to take a shot like this.
Best wishes, Ivan

Hi Grzegorz.
Very beautiful. Awesome light and mood. Lovely colour and composition. Good crop and framing. Very well done.
Regards, Steve.

Hi Greg

A really lovely personal view over the beautiful (i would say) October :)
I actually like fall a lot since it really gives way to the imagination (in photography, i mean). Just like in your photo: the late tree, the rays of sunlight passing throught the branches and a wonderful set of colors in the fallen leaves make now a splendid and original landscape. You wouldn't have this in any other season...
Technically speaking, i really love the composition and the exposure here. Superbly done!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Greg,
A beautiful capture of this tree with wide screen effect. Excellent composition and colors. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Widzę, ze jesteś też specjalista od wyszukiwania i dokumentowania takich właśnie, bardzo atrakcyjnych efektów. Zadanie nie jest łatwe i do wykonania przede wszystkim przez cierpliwych, upartych i zaopatrzonych w odpowiednia wiedzę. Śliczny kadr, typowo jesienny w każdym niemal względzie. Piękna praca.

This is truly stunning!
Exquisite light, perfect colours
Outstanding composition

An excellent combination of light and mist Grzegorz, I love this effect and have yet a chance to play with it. It is truly beautiful. Well done. :)

I am deeply fascinated at this phenomenon of light creating beams while passing through hazy atmosphere, Greg. The golden hues of autumn encompass this phenomenon on either side which you have made much more intense with the use of a wide black bar at the top and the bottom.
A very subtle and artistic rendition of changing seasons.
Thanks for sharing and best regards.

Witam Grzesiu,
No tak, nieublagalnie jesien przyszla... ze wszystkimi tymi chlodnymi dniami i nocami, ale i unikalnym charakterem polskim :) Fotka jest przede wszystkim klimatyczna (a takie lubie najbardziej!), nie tylko ukazuje caly urok jesieni (choc za ta pora roku to ja zbytnio nie przepadam :>), ale ma w sobie duzo tajemniczosci. Rewelacyjne swiatlo i kolorystyka, naprawde swietne zdjecie!

Beautiful light and a great composition. Excellent. :-)
