Photos: Autumn On The Island

Anyone that knows me knows just how much I adore autumn. To me it is the new year, the shedding of the old and the creation of a clean slate. More than just a time of transformation, it’s a time for beauty. Crunchy orange leaves, the delicate scent of smoke puffing out of chimneys along the Old Island Highway, warm mugs of tea and the comfort of a scarf bundled around my neck are all soothing elements of this time of year.

To celebrate a season that is no less stunning than the others on Vancouver Island, I wanted to take a quick peek at the photos your fellow Islanders have captured over the last couple of months…
