Weekly Photo Challenge: Transition

Transition from summer to autumn

Transition is the theme in this weeks Weekly Photo Challenge, see more entries here: WPC.

Suddenly when I woke up one morning it was all frosty outside, but still all boats where in the water and the nature was all green. A fast turn from summer to autumn this year…

But, I must say we where a bit cheated, few days later the weather was warm again and we still don’t have some really low temperatures, as we should by now. I love cold and crispy days, when the air is so clear and fresh, it look like I have to wait for that a bit longer. I hope for some snow before Christmas, but that’s not happening every year…

Frosty morning

Winter garden -my roses are freezing

I have more or less given up the one year long photo challenge that is called “365 foton“.

My time is not enough for all things that need to be done in my life. And I have to make some choices. But still I enjoy my moment of photographing, even if it want happen every day.

Like today: the world has turned into a frosty landscape and all the roses in my garden are freezing. They are still beautiful, but covered with ice crystals. Soon they will be gone for this time. Guess I will see them next spring, when the nice warm weather returns.

But I really like winter and wish for a cold and snowy one. It’s been a few years now with little or no snow at all, which is a bit sad, I love the silence and the white snow that lights up in the dark, so I hope it soon will be here.

Meanwhile I hope you will enjoy some of my frosty garden photos:)

Views over three small villages

In Cinque Terre there where, as the name gives us a hint about, five villages. And as I told you in my last post we where hiking between the villages and partly it was som hard trails to walk.

I got three of the villages on photo from some nice viewpoints, you can see them here:

Cinque Terre -a dream comes true

I have longed for going to Cinque Terre for years and when I finally got to book my trip I was afraid that I was going to get disappointed. I have had some photos from the trip in previous posts, and I must say that this place was amazing! We was walking some of the hiking trails and the views was so beautiful. I’m glad we went there in September, it was a lot of people but we where told that there are many times more in the summer… We walked som of the more difficult trails and it was not crowded at all:D And there would not be place enough for that. Narrow paths…

I will start my story in photos with some details from the sights, colorful details. Next post will show some more of the views and villages. We stayed in the village called Monterosso, one of the larger of the five villages. I must say my favorite was a town called Corniglia, read more about it here.

Here you can find my earlier posted photos from Cinque Terre: Heights and Blinded.
