Temperate Rain Forest Woodland

According to the song, Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. However, i think for photographers, Autumn is the most wonderful time. There is plenty of colour as nature prepares for winter, and when its not raining in the south of England, its a lovely time to walk in the woods and enjoy […]
