Stunning autumnal snapshots celebrate the beauty of nature around Greenwich
Vibe’s favourite snappers from Aperture Woolwich Photographic Society (AWPS) have got a busy season ahead of them, with all the beauties of autumn to capture on film.
To prove how stunning this season looks on camera, vice chairman Stu Mayhew has sent over a selection of autumnal shots, sure to inspire budding photographers.
He said: “Autumn is one of the best seasons for photography, the gradual shortening of the days is accompanied by nature’s own firework display of colour on the leaves and shrubs.
“Photographers benefit from having the sun lower in the sky, making taking pictures easier at anytime of the day - no harsh shadows of the midday in high summer.
“It’s worth getting out of bed early as you may well catch an atmospheric early morning mist in some of the woods locally or along the Thames path.
“A favourite of mine to visit just after dawn is Severndroog Castle on Shooters Hill.
“This gothic folly looks fantastic shrouded in mist and the deep reds and browns of the trees that surround it - it looks like a set from an old Hammer Horror movie.
“Look to for patterns in nature, as plants die off they can create amazing shapes.
“It’s also a great time of year to look down.
“Mushrooms and toadstools abound and you may be able to find a Fly Agaric, the classic Alice in Wonderland toadstool with its red cap and white spots - look don’t touch, and definitely take pictures.”
