The full bloom of Autumn colours highlight my favourite time of year! The natural landscape is bursting with a vast array colours, light mists, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and comfortably warm temperatures. Well, it was roasting hot outside today, but you know what I mean! September is drawing to a close as we launch well and truly into autumn.
The many tones of yellows, reds and greens offset against a backdrop of blue skies and fluffy clouds, or even turbulent grey skies, are the epitome of autumn colours to me. I have to get out there with my camera to capture the excellent landscape images it offers, and for basking in the great outdoors.
I took a few shots last week when I was near Cambridge just over a one-hour drive from Toronto, to the west. There I could hike around and appreciate the first significant sign of the autumn colours. Most interesting was the contrasting farmland with beautiful rich golden tones, tinged with reds and sitting alongside deep green fields. There’s just something warm and soothing about it all. It’s also exciting to watch the rapid development in the season even though winter looms ominously in the not-too-distant future.
These are a sample of what I’ve done so far to record and show off the autumn colours for this year. Not quite in full seasonal bloom yet but getting close. I like these because they look so bright, clear and simple. I’ll be posting more images in the coming weeks so please come back to take a look. Remember too that you can order prints of any of these images, framed or unframed. You can contact me for prices and orders by clicking on the “Contact “tab at the top of this page.
I also saw some very atmospheric autumn colours shots taken by photographer Rob Stothard in Richmond Park in London earlier this week. Morning mists, roaming deer and tranquil waters. Click here to view them. Beautiful.
