I have to conclude that this fall season has been absolutely spectacular when it comes to colour display. The few very cold, sunny days and the frosty nights we had recently have painted the landscape in rich, deep, warm shades of golden, red and brown. Judging from the photographs I took last year, the nature is about two weeks behind; an odd trend considering in the spring we were about a month ahead.
I love watching the changes in nature, that seem to currently be accelerating by each passing day. When I awoke today I was almost stunned when I looked out of the window. It seems as if just last week there was green in the foliage of the birch trees; yet today it is all gone. My surroundings look as if painted by the colours of sun and earth, signifying the ending of their yearly cycle. The leaves have began to fall rapidly and as the days are getting considerably shorter by each passing week, the stunning colours will all be gone very soon.
I could not resist but decided to post two set of collages today. One of my immediate surroundings that offer a continuous feast for the eyes, and one of the traditional birch tree update. Everything stands in its final and magnificent glory and I simply had to share with you the beauty of the Scandinavian autumn at its very best, as it is very fleeting and elusive in these parts of the world.
This is also my last post for a short while. I am taking a five day break to spend some quality time with Batcat and the Irishman and will be back on Halloween.
Have a truly wonderful fall week everyone.
