Autumn Walks

I love going for walks at this time of the year when the trees are cloaked in beautiful shades of reds and oranges and golds, and the ground beneath is a colourful carpet of crisp autumn leaves.

These are some of the beautiful trees at Park Island, one of our favourite walking spots.

This white-faced heron is a frequent visitor to the stream at Park Island.

Finn and I go for a walk through Plantation Reserve most mornings, usually a great meeting spot for other dog walkers, although on this particular morning I chose a quiet time so I could take some photos of the trees.

I love to pick up little treasures on our walks and display them on a nature shelf that I have in my studio at home.

Autumn leaves
Tiny birds nests and feathers
Treasures from the beach
Seed pods
Other interesting things

It seems I can never go home empty-handed; there are always so many interesting things to find!

      1. Not very. In the winter we have frosty mornings, but it rarely falls below 0 degrees celsius. The average winter temps here are usually around 12-16 degrees celsius. My husband is from England and he tells me that I don’t know what it’s like to be really cold!

  1. This reminds me quite a bit of our neck of the woods…fall is my favourite season although this year, with winter being so long, I am hoping summer will linger a tad more than usual. As always, your photography is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing Christine.

  2. The only trees that turn in autumn where we live are a few planted in a gardens here & there. Our dear eucalypts & other natives retain their greens of various shades.
    I love to collect treasures too when I walk in the bush or at the beach. πŸ™‚

The trees look stunning, I love your photos of the autumnal colours and the way the leaves carpet the ground – amazing!
