Breenhold Gardens: Capturing the Colors of Autumn by Leanne Lindsay

Imagine this: crisp air nipping at your cheeks, the crunch of fallen leaves underfoot, and a kaleidoscope of color exploding before your eyes. That’s exactly what greeted me when I finally made it to the legendary Breenhold Gardens in the heart of autumn. This photo captures the very essence of that magical day. A lone figure, dwarfed by the trees cloaked in fiery reds walks in the clearing, his back to us, a canvas for our own interpretations. Are they lost in the beauty of the landscape, or simply taking a moment to soak it all in? The umbrella, a riot of autumnal colors itself, shelters their head and shoulders, adding a touch of mystery. You can almost hear the rustle of wind through the branches, the symphony of nature playing its farewell song to summer and beckoning Winter. The breathtaking beauty of Breenhold Gardens is a reminder that sometimes, the most extraordinary journeys are the ones we take to witness the simple magic of the world around us.

Born in Adelaide in 1962, Leanne Lindsay’s family moved to Sydney when she was 12 years old. She was gifted her first camera for her 21st birthday but a break-in saw her precious camera stolen just 3 years later. It was only in her late 50s she was able to afford to replace it and now in her 60s she has discovered a passion that was sadly lost many years ago. She now photographs families and newborns but enjoys architectural photography and landscapes in particular.
