September heralds cooler temperatures, longer shadows and subtle changes in nature’s colour palette. It’s a great time for walking even before the greens meld into oranges, golds and reds later in the season.
Whether you’ve sauntered for a couple of miles in the South Downs, enjoyed a picnic in the Black Forest, or hiked the length of the Pyrenees in autumn, we’d love to hear about it. If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.

The best tip of the week, chosen by Tom Hall of Lonely Planet, will win a £200 voucher to stay at a Sawday’s property – the company has more than 3,000 in the UK and Europe. The best tips will appear on the Guardian Travel website, and maybe in the paper, too.
We’re sorry, but for legal reasons you must be a UK resident to enter this competition.
The competition closes on 27 September at 9am BST
