Autumn brings wonderful things from a photographers point of view. Spectacular color changes, pleasant temperatures, and shorter days (so I don’t have to get up as early to catch a sunrise).
Nature’s final flourish fills the world with rustling leaves, crisp cool morning air, the sweet perfume of apple cider and pumpkin spice. Landscapes will be painted with various shades of light, hot tea will become the beverage of choice (or coffee with Bailey’s Irish Cream) and the aroma of burning wood from the hearth will greet me at home in the evening.
I feel the best time of the year is always the one I’m in, but Autumn comes with some excellent perks.
