Bright autumn leaf colour and a sunny afternoon: I photographed my latest biscuit tin labels for the Fine Cheese Company. The theme was the English countryside, and these are the two Autumn tins. Hedgehogs and red squirrels live in my Scottish garden. The apple trees and hills and woods are all part of my home landscape. I don't have a distant lake in my back garden though, that's taken from a bit further afield, the Lake District perhaps. And my pumpkins are never going to get that big.
