The Autumnal Equinox is finally here.

Thanks to the unseasonably warm summer we're now seeing some beautiful autumnal colours adorn our picturesque isle.

The vibrant Autumn shades have sent professional and amateur photographers into frenzy - all desperate to capture Britain’s natural splendour.

But the weather has taken a turn in the last few days with storms battering the coast.

John Griffiths, a forecaster with the MeteoGroup, said "There is a low just off Ireland which is going to stick around for the next few days.

"It is windy and Scotland will get the worst of it on Wednesday. In the Western Isles there will be some strong winds, but it is autumn and this is normal."

Take a look below at the before and after sliding images...
