Favourite time of year

This is my absolute favourite time of year.  Everything is in abundance.  I love all the texture and warm colours autumn puts on display.  The sunlight is different during this time of year.  It's a brighter, whiter light.  Even food seems to taste better for some reason. 


This is my hunter-gatherer time of year.  I collect objects of nature to photograph or use in paintings.   My three year old and I collected these chestnuts from the church yard across the street - my attempt to keep him in tune with nature.
