The Autumn colour this year in Milton Keynes has been some of the best I've seen since I moved here - 23 years ago! So when the sun was rising and the mist was still hanging over the canal one October morning, I just had to get out there with the camera.

I've long been a huge fan of Milton Keynes and will always defend it to the hilt as a great place to live, work and bring up a family - so I hope that shots like these, all taken pretty much in the centre of the town, will help others to see it the same way that I do.
