Autumn really is the photographers season, and in my opinion, the best season of the year. As trees, birds and wildlife prepare for the onset of the cold winter months they can dazzle us with their changes of colour and dramatic displays.
It's time to bring out the camera, clean those lenses and charge the batteries in readiness for this fantastic spectacle. Good preparation will pay dividends when the drama begins.
There are some great places to visit during the month of October, locally there is Evenley Woods, hidden treasure, where you can see autumn flowering snowdrops (Galanthus reginae-olgae) and an impressive list of spindleberries (Euonymus) and plants with their autumn clothes.
