Upon returning to the UK after another summer in Ibiza (I’m back, hello), I was expecting to be greeted with a season of gloomy, rainy English weather and long, dark evenings, but I was very pleasantly surprised! It seemed fairly sunny and somewhat warm on the first day of November, so I donned my favourite coat with the fleeciest of hoods, grabbed my camera (and mother) and wandered over to the park for a little autumn walk, thinking to myself that I might find a nice leaf or two to photograph as we trundled along.
Little did I know that I would be finding a whole lot more than just a nice autumn leaf, as we pushed open the gates and stumbled upon THE GOLDEN LIGHT OF THE GODS. I actually couldn’t believe my eyes as we walked up the path and right into what felt like a beautifully lit Hollywood movie scene.
I haven’t added any magic mist to these whilst editing, just enhanced the colours – those rays of sunlight actually looked like this! Shout out to my mum who thought she was just coming for a leisurely wander and then ended up modelling for me/being my tripod/patiently waiting as I freaked out over how epic this was.
After having spent a good hour walking up a path that would usually only take five minutes, we made it over the top of the hill and down to the lake, where the golden haze was hovering over the sparkly water in an enchanted-forest sort of way. The ducks were LOVING IT.
And we even managed to find some pretty autumn leaves to photograph on our way home! I’ve always been a spring-summer kind of girl, but if this day was anything to go by, then I feel like I could probably warm to autumn too.
