From our house to the neighbouring horse firm.
Half the trees are bare in October,15.
During October,15, we were blessed with beautiful sunshine for a large nos of days. It was one such bright day - 3rd Friday of October, when we went for a walk in the neighbourhood of Puistola , Helsinki . We went from our house to the near-by horse-stable through a path strewn with leaves , shed by the shrubs and trees through this path runs. We walked into the cluster of houses in the neighbouring area. And... then we came out on E75 , strolled on the foot-path for a whole before we returned home. During this leg of our walk, we noticed a few trees - not many though - whose leaves were wearing a copper-like colour. Bright mid-day sun made these trees stand apart from the ones whose leaves have turned yellow or deep orange. Unfortunately, I was not carrying my camera and missed the opportunity of clicking.
Lack of sun-light affected brightness !
After 3 days, I went out with my camera, tracing the same route, capturing the photos of neighbourhood in general , colourful trees and shrubs as well as the bare ones. But, the sky was mostly covered with cloud . Occasionally, sun-rays pierced the cloud , offering little photo opportunities.
Sun less noon !
During this walk, I discovered a tree with copper-colour leaves in the compound of a house in a by-lane of my route. Fortunately, a gentleman was coming out as I posed with my camera from the road outside. With his permission, I went inside the compound, took several photos of the leaves adorning its branches . When I walked out, I noticed : this gentleman was talking to his neighbour as she was preparing to out in her car and watching my movement !
With thanks to the 'unknown' gentleman.

My eyes and camera looked for the trees with copper-colour leaves. Yet, other scenes also crept in.
