Nieul Sur l’Autise is the birthplace of Eleanor of Aquitane around 1122 in the Abbey. Our recent visit took us along the river on one of the better days in late November where reflections and autumn colours were captured with the D750 & Tamron 24-70 zoom .

F9 50mm 1/125. Autumn colours from trees lining the river bank.
F9 62mm 1/60. A crop for detail on water falling from the wier. A slow shutter speed provided the foamy effect, a tripod would have allowed longer exposure.
F9 31mm 1/160. Tree reflections
F22 24mm 1/400. Straight into the sun from a bridge gave an almost monochrome effect with some nice cloud. F22 provided some star burst and few artefacts, which doesn’t detract too much.
F11 29mm 1/40. Amazing weeping willow.
F9 24mm 1/160. Amazing foliage in the upper canopy of this grand old oak.
F11 24mm 1/15. Exposure was difficult here, as the top is over and the bottom slightly under to resolve reflections in the black inky apearance of the water.
And no, the foreground leaves were not placed!
