This week the team have been out and about, experiencing all that this wonderful season has to offer. Everywhere we look there’s a photo opportunity but Autumn just brings that certain something extra to the party. Go forth with your DSLR or your point and shoot and let us see the magnificent colours that surround us right now.
I have finally realised that this may be my favourite season. At this point in the year we pretty much know what to expect after the letdown that is, usually, our summer. Crunchy leaves, conkers, hot chocolates, thermostats up, blankets, baking, jumpers, Halloween, planning for Christmas, planning for next year’s holidays, dark evenings, candles, cuddles, I could go on and on!
The foraging fairy has been out gathering and he presented me with this epic haul of blackberries and fruit which have so far been turned into… Apple Sauce, Blackcurrant No Bake Cheescake, Blackberry Liqueur & Apple & Blackberry Muffins. Contented sighs all round <3
I love Autumn, the gentle change in the weather but it is still good enough to get out and about. We recently went to Richmond Park, always a favourite for capturing the deer, and as it is Autumn and rutting season, they are rather •ahem• busy! Thankfully, I had my long lens, so I was a good few metres away from this handsome fella!
Thinking of autumn will always take me straight to the October colours of my home on the Isle of Skye. The skies deepen to a rich blue, the purples of the heather blend with the yellows and russets of the bracken and the golden rustling grasses – and the rusty passing place signs let me know that summer is over for another year!
Autumn mornings mean glorious walks with the dogs for me, with glistening cobwebs and an ever changing array of colours. It can also mean pouring rain and the feeling of doom that winter is coming, but we won’t dwell on that! Here is Jess on a morning walk in the mist and dew taken just a week or so ago.
I adore Autumn, it’s one of my favourite times of the year. I think of long walks wrapped up and hot chocolate and marshmellows and that crisp air and sound of crunching leaves under my feet. I did a fashion shoot where we used a huge bag of dried out Autumn copper leaves and everytime I look at this image it transports me to this time of year.
Our favourite image last week was from Susan K Mann, and her wonderful shot of her daughter blowing bubbles.
