The colours of autumn | Photography

If you've followed this blog for a while, or you follow me on Instagram, then it's no secret that I am pretty well obsessed with the colours & light of autumn. There is just something in those stunning reds, oranges, and browns that speaks to me. And don't even get me started on the beautiful contrast of orange & blue. I just love it.

I look forward to autumn every year. I'm lucky that where I live there is no shortage of autumn colour (once the season actually arrives that is, which seems to be later and later every year!). But it's not just the colours, it's the fact that we can finally go outside for lovely long walks without melting all over the path, and we don't have to stay out till well past dinnertime to be able to enjoy the beautiful sunsets.

Thankfully the girls seem to enjoy autumn just as much as I do, however I suspect it may be for slightly different reasons (can anyone say 'crunchy leaves'!). Whatever their reasons for enjoying this season, we've certainly been trying to make the most of it. The days lately have been just right, not too hot, not too cold, and no wind to speak of. Perfect walking weather!

Last week we managed to get out twice to enjoy the autumn colour. Once on Wednesday to ride bikes and see if we could spy the kangaroos living down the road (we didn't see them, but some lovely soul has left a bucket of water out for them). The again on Saturday the girls and I headed down the road to collect up some lovely big crunchy leaves to use for some autumn inspired craft the next day. Which was basically a was to keep the girls occupied on Sunday while I got some work done. It worked, and they created some lovely artworks to boot!

I'll be blogging not only the photos I took on Saturday, but the little film I made from that outing on my business blog this coming Thursday and I would love it if you check it out when it's live. Until then, I'll share some of the photos I took on our Wednesday afternoon walk/ride here today...

What is your favourite thing about autumn?
