Autumn is officially here, bringing its grey mornings and cold days. It’s easy to feel a bit low while reminiscing summer memories, beach vibes and picnic parties. For most people, Autumn is bad news: shorter days, cold breeze, trees being stripped of their leaves, and precursor of the winter blues.
Even though all of these are surely true, I somehow always had a special kind of love for Autumn. Spring probably have more fans being all about new beginnings but how can you have new beginnings without proper endings?
Leaves in all their poetry are not leaving without a fight. They showcase their most amazing and intense colors, waving us goodbyes. Look around you and you will notice all possible shades of reds, oranges, yellows and greens. So aren’t trees at their best during this season?
Lights in Autumn can be fantastic to take outdoor photos. Wait for the rain to stop and grab your camera and rain jacket, you’ll be amazed by what you’ll find. Flowers dripping with water will appear in all their glory. Try to play with your settings to blur the background and you will obtain beautiful flower portraits!
If you look well enough during your autumnal walks, you will probably find out that Autumn is not just about endings after all! Indeed, mushrooms are quickly appearing all over the forest, some ready to pamper your taste buds while others are colorfully warning you not to eat them.
In term of wildlife, Autumn is one of the most hectic seasons. While some animals are changing their fur colors to adapt to the future snowy landscapes, others are busy storing enough food to survive the cold days. If you live in a city, squirrels can be great Autumnal models to train your wildlife photography skills.
So what are you waiting for? Go out now and explore this wonderful season!
