I couldn’t resist heading out with my camera on such a gorgeous autumn day. With the sun shining brightly and the sky perfectly clear and blue, the contrast of the crispy golden leaves was just right.

My friend and I decided to head down to Kirkstall Abbey which is only a 10 minute walk from my house. With it having the old abbey surrounded by plenty of trees and large open grass areas it’s perfect for some autumnal shots.

Below are a few shots from within Kirkstall Abbey grounds. We also found this really nice little opening in the trees, close to the river there were a few trees and thousands of gorgeous crisp orange, yellow and brown leaves on the floor waiting to be photographed.
