A Kitten Called Betty - October Challenge - Shades of Autumn

We're almost at the end of October and I haven't posted any photos from the October challenge over at A Kitten Called Betty

The theme for October was Shades of Autumn and here are my photos

I made this squishy squashy fabric pumpkins 
(you can see more of my makes over at my other blog Mad About Bags

I have seen some great ideas about photographing leaves on the internet so here are some that I found in the garden.

I stuck this leaf onto the window of my car to get these shots.

The pyracantha bushes are full  of bright orange berries at the moment.

My youngest has just started school and I take my camera with me some afternoons on the walk up to school I couldn't resist these bright red rose hip berries.

And I love the contrast of the purple and red berries in this shot.

The one good thing about the damp weather is the fungi, I spied these "fun guys" on a log in my garden.

I rotated this photo to give it a different perspective, this fungi was growing out of the side of another log in my garden, so this is looking down the side of the log but rotated.

We have this tree in the garden that has the most wonderful colours in autumn everything from yellow through green to the brightest red. Each year I try to get a different shot of the leaves.
you can see last years photo here

I have some macro rings which I decided to play with one rainy and foggy morning, I still have lots to learn about them and getting the focus right in macro but it did produce some great shots or the raindrops on the spiders webs.

And finally, whilst on a trip to our local country park to feed the ducks I spied these fabulous orange toadstools, I'm convinced there must be fairies living under them.

the ducks didn't seem very interested in our haul of bread, too well fed I'm afraid) but the seagulls were happy to fight over the pickings.

There will be a new challenge posted very soon for November if you would like to join in this facebook group please leave a comment below.

GREEN DAY (link up)

I've seen this link up on several other sites but haven't had time got my bum in gear to post any photos myself until today....

so here is my photo linking up with GREEN DAY 19 

over at 

If you fancy playing along here are the rules taken from Raindrops and Daises' blog

The object of the link up
is to post a photograph of something green.
The photos can be of anything you like
once they have a green theme,
green fields, pretty green things, green clothes, 
green leaves, green foods,
anything at all that takes your fancy!
I hope that you will join in the fun.
