An Autumn Walk in Kensington Gardens

Is there anything nicer than a walk in a park on a sunny autumn day?

I was in London a couple of weeks ago to visit the Opus Anglicanum exhibition at the V&A (which was amazing, by the way!) and the weather was so glorious that I decided to walk to the museum via Kensington Gardens. 


"A quick walk through the park" soon turned into a long, leisurely stroll up and down and around and about, as I soaked up all the autumnal loveliness. 

Carpets of leaves, crunching underfoot.

Trees like flames.


The gleam of the low, warm autumn light.

Avenues of vibrant colour and bold shadows.


And those slightly scruffy edges you get in autumn as everything is beginning to fade and fall, the first bare branches re-emerging. 

 A truly excellent start to a Nice Day Out!

The pictures are gorgeous! I especially love the carpets of leaves :) It must have been such a serene walk without any crowds around.

Thanks guys! I'm so glad to have been able to capture a snippet of this lovely day.

bairozan - I was lucky to visit during the week when it's less busy, but there were still plenty of people about (walking their dogs and taking photos of the park)... it's such a big place though that there was room for all of us :)

It's a very special place, Ariadne! Easy to forget you're in the middle of London :)
