Autumn Landscapes in Toronto on November 6th, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

We visited Jack Darling Memorial Park for the first time back in the summer and I remember thinking to myself at that time that we needed to come back in the fall. I just knew that all those green trees but in shades of reds and oranges would be the most beautiful sight and boy, was I right! Sometimes, you really need to be at the right place at the right time and that couldn’t be more true with these photos. We were here closer to golden hour and the way the trees were lit up with that golden light was just absolutely stunning. At times, it looked as if the trees were on fire because they were so gold. I’ve never seen anything like it and I couldn’t help but be thankful that my love of photography has brought me to so many wonderful scenes.

Autumn Scenes at Evergreen Brickworks in Toronto on October 31st, 2021.

Evergreen Brickworks is hands down one of my favourite places to visit during autumn. Our first visit of the autumn season was on Halloween day. We were here on Halloween of last year as well. While I was able to capture some gorgeous scenes both times, it was interesting to see the difference. The leaves were a lot farther along in their transformations last year, for sure. We only visited on Halloween this year since any time before then, the leaves were still green. Last year, Halloween was our second visit of the season and many of the trees were looking a little bare by that point.

We climbed up the steep hill here for the first time and the view from up top was so beautiful. I’ve never gotten photos like that before and I’m so happy I was able to see that view with my own eyes. As much as I love the other seasons, autumn is my favourite to photograph. Which is ironic as I despise the shorter days and the sunsets that occur earlier and earlier during this time.

Brickworks on October 31st, 2020.

Digital, 2020.

Our second visit to Brickworks this year, and on Halloween to boot! As you may remember, the 31st was also the last day before daylight savings ended. I really wanted to venture out and take advantage of that hour of sunlight we’d be losing. Under normal circumstances, we would be giving out chocolate to the kids, but this year we decided that it would be for the best if we skipped out.

Instead we decided to head out for some fresh air and beautiful nature. On a normal weekend, there would definitely be a lot more people out and about so bring a mask just in case. But on Halloween, I had a feeling that many people would be at home and that Brickworks would be more or less deserted. Last weekend, there were larger crowds out but as I had hoped, not so much on Halloween. We were able to head off on a longer trail and I was able to get some photos I was really happy with. This time, the whole family was out with no time constrictions so we were able to stay for a lot longer compared to the week before.

I really enjoy coming here and it’s so peaceful to be just surrounded by nature. The trees are definitely emptier now so this might have been our last autumn visit, sadly.
