In Pictures: Are you enjoying the change of season?

The summer is over and the autumn is here. Don’t be too glum.

SUMMER HAS LEFT us and autumn is here. While we may not have the best reputation for sunshine in this country, one of the benefits of our wet weather is lots of luscious foliage.

Nothing can be more beautiful than a walk through one of Ireland’s many parks and woods to witness the array of autumn colours on show.

It’s the time of year when the light is at its best and a great time to capture some of the changing colours on camera.
