THE feel of crisp leaves crunching underfoot as the sun shines on trees transformed into a sea of orange and red is perfectly invoked by this week's array of 'autumn' snaps.

Camera club has captured the season in all its glory from spectacular sunsets to conkers ready to be collected.

Many members chose to focus on the visible signs of the changing weather and we were, even more so than usual, spoilt for choice.

Some of our favourites included Allen Dannfald's image of wheat and flowers in a field bathed in the warm glow of the sun, and fallen leaves looking particularly vibrant by Anne Lane.

We also loved the contrast between the bright red leaves and blue sky in Paul Brewerton's snap.

There were also many images of dogs enjoying the autumn countryside.

Stand outs included Jaime Smith's black and white shot of a dog patiently waiting on the last of the blackberries.

We also loved Ian Jones' picture of a dog waiting with a ball in its mouth on a path.

The canine serves as the perfect focal point to emphasise the scale and length of the tree-lined row of trees.

No collection of autumn images would be complete without pumpkins.

We had many entries to choose from but a few that stood out were a collection of pumpkins of all shapes and sizes taken by Jamiee Dixon and a pair of giant pumpkins by Piers Burnell that look like a pair of oversized shoes.

Mr Dannfald also provided another one of our favourites this week with his row of pumpkins all neatly lined up at Peachcroft Farm, near Abingdon.

When he shared the image on the Oxford Mail Camera Club Facebook page earlier this week Sharon Allen praised the composition and we agree.

Finally, we loved a slightly more unusual interpretation of the theme sent in by Dawn Tivnan.

Her daughter Kelly-Anne Townsend created a realistic-looking leaf from clay then painted it in autumnal colours.

The fact it does not look out of place in our spread is a testament to her skill.

Next week’s theme is ‘happiness’.
