Ilkeston - Autumn Leaves
w/e 05 November 2023

All of this week's pictures were taken with a Nikon D3300.

What a difference a week makes. Last week our walk along the Erewash Canal revealed only a few autumn colours but now many of the tree-lined streets around the town centre are revealing their true autumn glory as these images show.

Park Cemetery

For months now the trees along Park Drive and Park Avenue have obscured the chapels at Park Cemetery but now with the leaves falling, it will soon be visible from Nottingham Road.
Cantelupe Road

The trees along Cantelupe Road at the side of the cemetery are forming a golden tunnel.
Old Park

There is a variety of autumnal hues on Chaucer Old Park ranging from brown, red, orange, yellow and even pink.
Leaf Covered Path

The path towards the town centre is becoming leaf covered and can be quite hazardous in wet or damp conditions.
Distant Colours

Even from under the canopy of trees along the path, distant colours shine through between the trunks.

Near & Far

And where two paths intersect, the change from green to autumn colours is apparent both near and far.
Changing Season

After passing under Chalons Way the climb up to the Erewash Museum, whether by the steps or the path, is through the changing season.
Market Place

On the Market Place the change from summer to autumn is obvious but at the current rate of change, all the leaves will soon be gone and for the winter months St Mary's Church will be visible through the skeletal branches.
