Autumn cathedral

I was pleased with this one. The cathedral peering out from behind the autumn leaves is St Andrew’s, the Roman Catholic Cathedral which is on the banks of the River Clyde.

I just liked the patterns and colours of the leaves here. This is from a tree near the bottom of University Avenue, near the Byres Rd junction.

Autumn hometime

I’m going to show a few photos from last week featuring Glasgow’s autumn colours, before they all disappear and fall off the trees! This is taken from the top deck of the bus on my way home. The building on the left is the O2 Academy (formerly the Carling Academy), one of Glasgow’s main concert venues. The queue starting to build outside was because local(ish – he’s from Paisley) hero Paolo Nutini was playing that evening.

The traffic on this stretch of road can be quite slow-going during rush hour. It’s got worse as they are building the M74 extension which will cross over the road a bit further down, so there are cones and roadworks and allsorts going on. I’ll be glad when it’s finished!

Another archive shot (can you see I’m digging out all the autumn ones so that at least the trees look more or less like they do now!). This is the entrance to Glasgow Central Mosque.

We all know by now where this is! The University, in the fading autumn light. Lovely.

Another one from 2 years ago, this is from a tree at the top of Great George Street, in the heart of the university area. I do have a good excuse not to take a picture this year – this tree is outside a building which is covered in scaffolding (and has been for several months), and the scaffolding is rather encroaching onto the tree’s space. I love the colours of the leaves, it really is so vibrant, it’s a shame it’s so hidden this year.

An old photo, taken almost exactly 2 years ago – the scene now is pretty much the same. This is autumn, Queen’s Park stylee.

Turning leaves

This is the tower from Glasgow University’s Main Building, taken from University Gardens. However what I was particularly wanting to highlight the leaves turning from green to yellow. I do generally like autumn, but I would prefer it if we’d actually had a summer!
