"Whether it be the buttery yellows of birches, the vivid reds of sycamores or the burning gold of beech trees, autumn colour is an ephemeral spectacle that is not just confined to a few choice nature reserves, but a treat that can be seen just about anywhere," wrote Mike Dilger for the Guardian earlier in the month.
Autumn has arrived late this year, with the leaves retaining their dazzling colours thanks to the unseasonable warm and wet autumn we've had.
"A walk on the wild-side is also an assault on the senses, so don't forget to use them," continued Mike.
This is the message being stressed by Liverpool Primary Care Trust's Decade of Health and Wellbeing campaign.
Going out into the woodlands and taking note of the seasonal changes around you can improve your mental wellbeing, as well as contributing towards a fit and healthy lifestyle.
We hope you have enjoyed autumn as much as we have here at The Mersey Forest.
