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