It’s that time of the year when the season is coming to an end and the days are shortening, the sun doesn’t climb as high and the light takes on a quality that just can’t be described with words.
The play of light and shadow, contrasts and highlights, leaf-filters and autumn colour as the low sun back-lights the garden is mesmerising. We’ve been lucky to have some very sunny days this autumn and I took the chance to grab some pictures before all the leaves came down.
The glaring overhead sunlight of summer changes to a much more gentle, soft and distinctly yellow light that comes in low and filters through leaves, illuminating the garden from the side. I hope the pictures give some hint of just how ethereal the garden looks in this incredible autumn light.
