Autumn in December.

I’m incredibly lucky to live right next door to Heaton Park. It makes for a great location for photo shoots but also really nice walks to unwind. Yesterday I decided after spending most of the week at my desk that I would take a wonder.

I ended up taking a trail I had never seen before and I obviously took my camera too. One thing I noticed was that there was absolutely no sign that Christmas was only 3 weeks away. Leaves were still falling, it was still fairly warm and there was mud everywhere! My boots are in need of a wash…

But anyway..here’s some of the pictures I took on my trail….

IMG_3218-2The traditional Mancunian grey sky…

IMG_3229-2My trail started by the new garden centre…

IMG_3237-2We’ve had pretty bad weather recently and some trees looked a little worse for wear…

IMG_3246-2The adventurous side of me really wanted to start climbing…

IMG_3253-2I absolutely loved the texture of this bark…

IMG_3256-2So much greenery, it was all so very calming…

IMG_3266-2And I had a friend following me around… (he had friends following me too but this was the best shot I got)

IMG_3268-2Some of the little spots I kept finding could be some amazing photo shoot locations…

IMG_3288-2A little bridge across a small brook…

IMG_3301-2And then the sun began to set…

IMG_3321-2And then I found the pond and it was just beautiful…

IMG_3325-2Again, the wet wood texture looked amazing…

IMG_3338-2Looking back at where I had come from….

IMG_3343-2Sat on a bench by the animal sanctuary and looking over this gorgeous scene…

IMG_3347-2I mean come on, it really was beautiful…

IMG_3372-2This was kinda sad seeing this tower. I remember when I was younger and I saw all the satellites attached and dad telling me what they were all for. Now seeing it nearly almost completely bare reminded me that times change. But maybe it’s for the better, who knows!

I hope you enjoy my Heaton Park pictures, let me know what you think!
