Maple leaves on the ground at Winkworth Arboretum in Surrey. I am building a collection of free pattern/texture images for use by designers because I always find it hard to locate high quality free images of this type. This image is expressly placed in the public domain and can be used by anyone without attribution.
PERMISSION TO USE: you are welcome to use this photo free of charge for any purpose including commercial. I am not concerned with how attribution is provided - a link to my flickr page or my name is fine. If the used in a context where attribution is impractical, that's fine too. I want my photography to be shared widely. I like hearing about where my photos have been used so please send me links, screenshots or photos where possible.
