Autumn, that time of year which is neither here nor there; with the summer gone and darker colder days of winter seemingly not far away.
However Autumn for writers, photographers and general outdoor enthusiasts is a positive boon. The change in colours of our landscapes, the flora and fauna around us, the sunsets as the stretch of daylight hours begins to creep in; they all add to a change of focus and perspective (at least where this writer – and other outdoor types I am in touch and connect, with are concerned)
A recent visit to Kenilworth Castle in Warwickshire proved my points to the above. The fact we were there for pre-Halloween events added extra seasonal atmosphere it has to be said, however it was every bit an autumnal canvas. Lengthening shadows of varying shades against ancient ruins, trees beginning to shed their loads, all of which I hope some of the images below will reflect and do justice to.
