Autumn has arrived – the days are getting shorter, and a morning chill fills the air : (

But on the positive side, the leaves are turning all shades of orange, red, brown, gold and yellow; and it’s the time when all photographers head to their favourite fall colour locations 🙂

Pretty much everywhere you look, you can find some amazing transitions in colour. So this month’s theme for our photo competition is “The Colours of Autumn.

What to photograph? One leaf or two? a few or a whole tree? If you’d like some inspiration, please visit this post on – 15+ Photos Reveal The Full Spectrum Of Autumn’s Colors and definitely check our autumn picture gallery on Pinterest:

We’ll choose and publish a selection of our favourite images, and the winner will receive a £75 in course vouchers. For the second place, we have a fantastic book “Understanding Color in Photography: Using Color, Composition, and Exposure to Create Vivid Photos”.

We are looking forward to seeing your entries!!!
