As we bemoan the arrival of the cooler (ok colder) months, it's not all bad, especially when it comes to photography. When the sun's shining, grab the camera for some cracking shots. With the sun tracking lower in the sky, the colours become more saturated and more striking.
It's a great time to refresh those homepage gallery photos.
Just remember to keep the sun behind you and watch out for your wonderful subjects squinting. And the best tip of all; if you want a photo to have greater impact, just get closer.
The image below was taken at 2pm in July. You can see the long shadows and the intensity of the colours. Taken on an iPhone X in panorama mode - and with no filters.
