Conkers! by wordpixman

Conkers!


I nearly forgot to take a '365' picture today ... and then I looked down and noticed that autumn has truly arrived!
Arthur, not sure what conkers are, but this shot is really pretty, and yes, it feels like autumn.

@peacerebel ... Thank you Charlene. Conkers are the popular name here (UK) for horse chestnuts (the inedible chestnut)..

Nice capture--love the light and the colors. Arthur, I was just asking my husband if he remembered horse chestnuts (he didn't because he grew up farther south where there were none.) I haven't seen them in years--I'm so glad you posted a photo of them!

Years ago I had a horseapple tree but I never knew the seed were called conkers or even what the seed looked like. They are actually beautiful.
It is a sign of fall.

Great fall pic! I had no idea what conkers were until I read further! :)

I didn't know what conkers were, until the 365. I have learned so much since January. I love the beautiful colors in this pic!

Thank you all for your kind comments, which are greatly appreciated. I also love this project because we learn from each other, not only about photography but so many other things that are either unknown or described differently in other places, and that can only be a good thing, so thanks again for sharing!,
