It's that time of year when the leaves are changing colour, its getting darker earlier and its getting noticeably cooler. As much as I love summer, there is something about the autumn season that I really like. I'm not going to lie, I will wear shorts and a t-shirt for as long as possible during the year, but when the weather changes there is something nice about wrapping up to head out on those chilly mornings.

Only the other day I woke up to a very misty morning and it was time to bring out my thick parka. Yes, it might only be just getting colder, but I will take any chance to throw on my coat.

Another benefit of this season is that it provides some great opportunities for photography and I'm looking forward to going to some of the many parks in Liverpool to get some seasonal shots. At this time of year you can get some awesome sunrises and sunsets and I would love to get out and get some photos of both of these on the same day.

The colour of the trees in autumn is such a nice sight and wandering down the path kicking your way through piles of fallen leaves and the crunch of them under your feet is strangely satisfying. Autumn hosts a number of great events, one namely being my birthday, and others such as Halloween and Bonfire Night.

With the nights drawing in, turning the heating up and sitting with a hot chocolate in front of the telly becomes more acceptable as a plan for the evening!

Those are a few of the reasons why I love Autumn.

What do you like about this time of year?

Andy.
