Autumn (or Fall) is one of the most popular seasons for outdoor photography, get ready for the leaf-peeping season with inspiration from these stunning themed shots

With its spectrum orange hues, warm soft tones and enchanting, otherworldly light; Autumn (or Fall) is a firm favourite - myself included - with all types of outdoor photographers. And for some, it's the season that beats them all; particularly if you're a landscape photographer as it means you don't have to get up at the crack of dawn (or stay up super late) for the gorgeous autumn golden hour.

Whether you prefer to set your camera and tripod at a foliage-covered waterfall, or you prefer to roam the urban landscape looking for fall-themed scenes; these shots show the power of autumn in photography and I hope they inspire you.

And if you're looking to get the very best out of your Autumnal shots, see our dedicated guide on how to capture beautiful scenes.
