    Russet leaves, frosty mornings and a crispness in the air are just some of the sensory joys autumn brings. We caught up with three professional photographers who have shot autumn at its finest.

    Mist at Gougane Barra

    'Gougane Barra in County Cork is a little-known gem. Beloved of many Irish people, few from outside the country are aware of it. A wonderfully calm morning produced a mirror-like reflection on the lake and a band of mist rising behind the church completes the picture. As I was making this photograph with a student, a local passed by. He paused, watched us for a moment, looked up at the view and exclaimed, "Aren't you lucky men!" How right he was.'

    'This view of Doulus Bay from the summit of Geokaun Mountain on Valentia Island, County Kerry is a classic Irish view. Seen here on a blustery morning just as the sun is rising, the autumn colours are just taking root. I find the panoramic format works very well for grand views such as this, doing real justice to the location and the experience of being there. Being willing to get wet while making your photographs ensures that you get interesting skies.'

    'The powerful autumn swells always draw me to coastal locations like Fanad Head Lighthouse [above] for the added drama they lend. Also the bogland grasses turn wonderful russet tones throughout the autumn making mountain and bog landscapes a joy to shoot.'

    Deer at Killarney National Park

    'Autumn in Ireland can be wonderful to photograph particularly where you find old mature woodland with large beech trees. The Bandon river valley has an abundance of these forested areas and they can provide some excellent opportunities if the weather is good to you.'

    'Killarney National Park is another favourite area of mine to photograph in the autumn. The woodlands can be spectacular there and there are streams and waterfalls all over the area. As well as this, the autumn is the time the red deer go into their rut and the stags bellow loudly for a month or so.'

    Now that you know how to photograph autumn, how about a trip to Ireland to try it for yourself?
