Autumn in London: the reds, yellows and browns of Green Park and St James's Park, October 2015

With the clocks going back, autumn is now well and truly upon us.

Yesterday, I took a walk around two central London parks on a sunny afternoon to photograph the changing colours of the season.

Compared to the hordes of tourists trampling through St James’s Park, Green Park was an oasis of tranquillity,¬†and proved a far more pleasant place to amble around and pamper life’s complexities.

Here’s some photos from my stroll around the park.
