As the warm summer days begin to fade away we find the nights drawing in and the temperatures dropping. Our minds turn to winter and the ensuing delights of Christmas, but before all that happens we have the wonders of Autumn to enjoy. This brings about a visual change to our world, with new colours across the landscape and temperatures that make those glorious barbecues seem like distant memories.
One of the most inspiring things about Autumn are the incredible colours this season brings with golden leaves and misty mornings that . The trees that were once full of green leaves now begin to wind down for the winter, shedding the leaves like a colourful carpet on the ground. A multitude of colours like a patchwork quilt are created with reds, oranges, yellows and browns. Catch them in the low sunlight of an early morning and they can look like pieces of artwork in their own right. Add a touch of frost and the images they produce really catch the eye.
Forests and parks are transformed into new colour schemes, with blankets of leaves surrounding trees that begin to show their branches through the Autumnal change. Early mornings are colder and darker, with mists lying across the landscapes, especially along rivers and around the hills and mountains. If you get up early enough you will get to appreciate these magic scenes that Autumn produces before the sun comes up and burns the mists away.
Jack Frost visits us on these early Autumnal mornings, bringing a sparkle and magic quality to our world. Grass and plants get covered in the white glitter and shine as the sun rises above the horizon. These moments are a photographers dream. Whether you are shooting for Instagram or just love to capture what nature produces, take your camera with you throughout Autumn – the colours and change of landscape can make for great photographs. I may be laughed at by pro photographers here, but even modern smartphones can capture great images these days, so if you are out walking the dog, take your iPhone with you and you’ll be surprised at what great images you can come back with!
Not only are the Autumn mornings photogenic, but the evenings become a great source of inspiration for photographers and nature lovers. The sun is lower in the sky and the sunsets somehow seem more colourful. Of course, the sun sets much earlier in Autumn and this is compounded by the clocks changing!
