This old tree in Belvoir Forest, Belfast, seen in full autumn glory. In the middle of the afternoon in November, the sun is low enough in the sky to light the tree from the side, bringing out some of the wonderful texture and character in the trunk.
Minnowburn Beeches in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on a sunny morning at Hallowe'en 2009. The foliage is turning to red, yellow and orange shades as winter approaches. The stream at Minnowburn winds its way through the scene, and reflects the vibrant red leaves of a small tree near the water's edge.
