    Autumn stroll

    If I had to pick a favourite season, I would have to choose autumn. Don’t get me wrong, summer is lovely and considering we experience winter for a majority of the year in this part of the world, autumn edges it out for the follow reasons. First, the changing colours for the trees. Granted, Manitoba colours don’t have the diversity and longevity of the maples and beeches of my childhood living in Ontario, but what a contrast between the yellow aspens against a rich Prairie blue sky. The cooler days, which beckon pulling out a knitted sweater, come in at No. 2. However, one of my favourite attributes ranking autumn as my favourite season is the decline in pesky mosquitoes, making for much more enjoyable walks in nature. And one of my favourite locations is the Brandon Hills. While out for a recent morning walk with my partner, I took some time to record a selection of images with my iPhone, which is much smaller and lighter to carry than my Canon camera slung on my shoulders during regular work hours. Originally captured in colour, which was one of the top reasons I love autumn, I converted the images to black and white — a format I enjoy as much as the season itself — to add to the textures and tones found in the natural world, as opposed to the richness and flash of colour seen in our everyday lives.
