Changing of the seasons can be rather depressing as the nights draw in and the flip flops have to be exchanged for boots for the next six months! So it is good to look for the positive aspects of Autumn. Visually pleasing to the eye is the flora and fauna surrounding us, everywhere the trees are changing colour, creepers are shifting from green to red, nature is a wonderful and amazing thing to inspire us all.

The image attached entitled Windermere trees, Lake District by one of APL's photographers Chris Harrison shows a delighful range of colour, enhanced by a sunny day.
