Autumn in the forest

Lovely walk in the forest

The forest is my favourite place, next to my other favourite: the sea, of course…

Every season has its charm: winter, spring, summer and autumn! Love the change in colours and weather. Soon winter will arrive and I hope we will get a lot of snow this year:) Snow make the world a bit more magic and I think we all need some magic in our lives, or what do you think?

But for today I enjoy the last pictures of wonderful autumn colours, which I think will do just fine! Glad for my trips outdoors, they bring me a lot of energy.

So please enjoy some yellow and bright colours:

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

180/365: 312 titta här! (look here)

Wow, look here!

Look here what I found this morning, when I was taking a walk and arrived at the marina: it was all frosty, already… I must say it adds some special beauty to things, that glimmering, ice cold frost. The sun really reinforce the glimmering:)

Titta här vad jag såg i morse när jag tog min promenad och kom till småbåtshamnen: allt täckt med frost, redan… Men ändå: det blir väldigt vackert med den glittrande, kalla frosten. Solen förstärker verkligen glittret:)

Weekly photo challenge: shadowed

Autumn light -shadowed leaf

Shadows can be frightening, they can give contrast in a picture.

Shadows can also offer some coolness during a hot summer day.

When taking photos, shadows offer a lot of creative ways to give some tension to the picture and also contrast or effect. It might be frightening or just peaceful. The photo below shows shadows in the forest during an autumn day. The sun is no longer very high up, that gives nice shadows and light also in the middle of the day.

This post is an entry in the weekly photo challenge, the theme for this week is shadowed. To see more entries, or to participate, please click the link.

I hope you will enjoy this entry in the challenge!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Yellow

Yellow is a color that makes me think of the autumn. The wonderful leaves that are all around… This weeks photo shows a huge leaf on my sunflower, which was dying at that point. Sad but still very beautiful.

Have a great weekend!

An autumn walk by the seaside

Seaside walk

I love to walk by the seaside, all seasons, but especially autumn is a great time for long walks, recreation and to recover. Dark evenings and mornings make us go inside and have a peace and calming life while slowing down. It is highly needed and also enjoyable. If you ask me… Nature goes in to the same mood as I do and I love to walk outside and just enjoy the autumn sights.

The photos in this post is taken a few weeks a go when I was walking for a couple of hours. We have had a warm autumn this year and it has been very nice weather this far. But now I must say I beginning to long for some cold and snowy weather, it is about time:)

Splashes of summer colors in a autumn day

Those last summer colors…

This post about “summer colors” were supposed to be written last weekend. But once again I have been struggling with some technical issues. This time I could not upload photos, wich is a very bad thing in a blog with photos, isn’t it?

Anyway, now it is solved, something about my rights, set by the web host. Enough about that for now.

Last saturday I went out to my garden for inspiration and also to make some cleaning up before winter is here. I found a lot of various colors, small splashes of summer colors in a very grey autumn day. Lovely and enjoyable:) I love my summer garden and will miss it when it’s gone. But on the other hand: winter and snow can be really lovely too.

Here are a selection of my last flowers for this season, I hope you will enjoy them. And I hope that you might sence how wonderful they look out there in all the grey and brown autumn days.

Ain’t no sunshine when she is gone…

End of summer, goodbye sunshine!

I’m now back in blogging, and it’s a reliable sign that the autumn is here. Our sunny days will soon be over and here in Sweden we will once again be covered in darkness. Of course there are some sun in the autumn and winter as well but the days are getting shorter for every week now. In december the sun will be up between 09.00 and 15.00. That is a rather short day, don’t you agree.

Right now the world is beautiful, turning from summer to autumn, soon there will be all these colored leaves and a wonderful daylight. But in a way I grieve the summer every year, when “she” left us. I will miss you, but we will meet again next year:) Now in to a new season and some new views of life and nature. I hope you will come here to visit during the autumn, I will publish some photos from nature and sea. And I will also look back to the summer and a trip to Mallorca, you will get a report in photos.

Until next time I hope you enjoy my my amazing sunflower.

Sunlight on leaves -like a painting

I just love to see the effect of sunlight on leaves. It is sort of nature as it’s best. Leaves are transparant and thin, the light goes right thru it. That makes great photos, sometimes a bit abstract and also artistic.
Here are a few examples of photos I have taken, often whit the sun in front of me. Makes it a bit tricky to get details, sometimes it can be a lot of silouttes and shadows, wich I wants sometimes, but not in theese cases.
