As the season begins to change, Cornwall adopts a different feel. The colour pops of summer flowers and cloudless skies are replaced by  muted tones. A feeling of calm descends as we explore the different moods and feelings of autumn. Reaping the fruits of the fall, Lucy Cornes looks at the orchard revival that is creating artisan cider for the connoisseur as Tia Tamblyn investigates the benefits of eating seasonally, both on a sustainable and personal level. This idea is reaffirmed by the chefs at  the Porthminster Collection who forage just footsteps from their kitchens and gather crops from their gardens. Short supply chains are something that are vital to Ashleigh Smith, founder of The Atlantic Equipment Project; it underpins the whole ethos of her business and determines the very fabric of  the canvas bags and satchels that are the constant companions of the adventurers who wear them. The ebb of summer doesn’t leave without trace though. Aerial photographer George Stephens captures its vibrancy with a bird’s eye view offering an alternative perspective to the landscape, and resin artist Zee van Gils works with a fluid colour palette that knows no bounds. Now is a time when many are re-assessing what is meaningful. People are at the heart of this, but beautiful things, carefully chosen, that last a lifetime are also what should accompany us on our daily journey. Enriching our lives has never been so important, whether that be visually, practically or by the very nurturing of our souls with the larder surrounding us.
