“Battersea Autumn” – It was a beautiful cold autumn day with a crisp blue sky. The leaves were a perfect mix of colours and I was lucky to find there were very few people in the park. It felt like I could of been in the countryside and loved the fact London provides this beautiful sanctuaries of green spaces.

Alan Cartwright – “Turning Leaf”.

I found the leaf in my garden and I took the photo in the lounge. The leaf, almost transparent in the sun, shows that perfect balance between the green of summer and the red of autumn.
