Why not take six minutes out of your busy life to stop what you are doing and relax while my video takes you on a journey through autumn in the park.
So put on some headphones, set it to full screen mode and enjoy the show.
I'm sure you will enjoy it, Leave comments if it helped you relax.

Filmed entirely on a £30 second hand Canon Ixus 430. The footage is from autumn 2007 and 2008.

Markeaton Park is a wonderful public park in the City of Derby, Derbyshre, UK.
Markeaton Park was created in the 1770s by William Emes of Bowbridge Fields, it was part of a large private estate for the Mundys (a well known Derby family).
Sixteen acres of the park were given to the council in 1929 when the owner died. The land was donated on the understanding that it must be put to some use for the benefit of the citizens of Derby.

I have tried to capture autumn as seen through my camera lens using a combination of locked-off tripod shots, Macro Photography, Automatic panned video and post production pan and zoom techniques. The panned shots I took using my homemade time-lapse panning system but ran it faster than I would if using it for panned time-lapse.

I am only an amateur film-maker so forgive the quality of the film but I'm quite happy with the end result.

The dog that runs across the shot at 01:35 is not my dog and it was just a coincidence that it ran through the video pan at that point.

I love the vivid colours that you get at autumn and I hope that I have shown this in my video. Autumn marks the transition from summer into winter and here in Derby that period is 1st September to the 30th November.

I hope to make videos for the two remaning seasons in time so keep an eye out for those too.

Does anyone know what that tree is that has the vivid red leaves on it?

Thanks for watching.
