At this time of the year, I enjoy the autumnal face the park has to offer. While the colours are more muted to what I have enjoyed in Canada, they are pretty nonetheless. The rustic colours still remind me of a fading autumn which melts into winter.
Living in the UK, I have become accustomed to more unpredictable weather. While I enjoyed autumn’s colours over the weekend, the rain and wind pounded parts of the country Sunday night and Monday. It reminds me to enjoy and savour the moments of calm before the storm, and even the storm itself.
Whatever the weather provides, I often enjoy photographing my surroundings. Rain and wind can make it more difficult to take photos, but the weather can have such an impact on the mood and feel of a photo.
My view is as long as it’s not raining, I’ll keep taking photos. You don’t always need to have a nice sunny day that’s cloud free. A grainy, textured black and white image can be just as strong as an image with a nice blue sky.
