Big skies in autumnal photos can be something to behold, as soon as it rains and gives way to a sunset the colours can come alive like orange northern lights. With 22 acres of landscaped grounds at the Hanbury Manor Marriott and a variety of nature and trees, some of which maintain their green colour while others lose their leaves and a beautiful mix of oranges and reds - you are sure to get that Autumnal shot. Plus, if you get rained on, an afternoon tea and one of their stately rooms is sure to warm you up! Ware to go in Autumn
St Albans Cathedral
If you follow our Instagram, you'll soon see a firm favourite of local photographers is St Albans Cathedral. Whether it be on a crisp winter’s morning, or lit by a golden sunset, it has grandeur for any Instagram feed. For the Autumnal photo, the cathedral can be perfectly framed by the trees surrounding it and the leaves that have fallen. If you’re craving oranges and yellows, take a look inside too as the cathedral with the nave, tower and other areas of the church are beautifully decorated. Autumnal architecture
Watford’s Cassiobury Park, one of the UK’s top parks has the coveted Green Flag and covers 190 acres that are just waiting to be explored.
