Festival of Leaves 2016: The End.

Dear leaf lovers,

Autumn seems to be over, the leaves which are still clinging to their branches will soon be gone and the cold is taking over. I had an absolutely amazing time and I hope you did, too. I am so grateful for all of you who participated and hunted leaves for this challenge. Your pictures were so beautiful and making a little gallery out of them was probably my favourite part of the Mondays.

I wish you all a wonderful Christmas time if you are celebrating it, a happy New Year 2017 and I hope to see you all again next year! It was a pleasure hosting this challenge for so many talented photographers.

(some shameless self-promotion: I’m making a little Advent Calendar over on my blog verenacave.wordpress.com so you are getting a drawing a day! Also, you can read every text I wrote for NaNoWriMo 2016! About environment, art, books and so much more! A little read for the cold winter days…)

I wish you all the best

Lots of Love

Is that really a question? I mean look at that picture, isn’t she just adorable? In all of those red leaves? It’s sweet and fun and something rather different than usual. A pure bundle of joy for those cold winter days that are before us.

Festival of Leaves 2016: Last Week!

img_20161127_114342One more week to go!! I already started listening to Christmas songs again. Whoops… Also, NaNoWriMo is nearly over and I’m getting a bit more sleep again. Nearly reached the word count, I’m at 45000! 😀

Your photos this week show how many leaves are already gone. More on the ground than on the trees. For those of you who already made their last entry this week: I’m so thankful that you participated, I enjoyed every photo you sent. You are amazing!

Have a lovely week … and last week of this festival for 2016!!

lots of love

It’s Jo!

Her collection of photos is amazing. Those aren’t all of them, have a look at the original post please ;). She pictures the long shadows of the trees, single colourful leaves in the grass. The shades are beautiful, the combination of macro photography and larger shots is nicely done. The featured one is my absolute favourite of the series. The contrasts and details are stunning, a great image! She shares the essence of autumn when it is still around.

Festival of Leaves 2016: Week 12

Next week is the last week, my friends!

Leaves are falling so quickly now, you have to be very lucky to find ones that are still in full colour. It’s so sad to see them fade, to see winter creeping in. I believe, though, that we had a wonderful time enjoying our pictures. Those photo galleries make me so happy!

Have a lovely week!

(Anyone else participating in NaNoWriMo this year? I need a wordpress writing buddy! It’s getting increasingly difficult to come up with words every day 😉  )

Colours! I want to shout.
The cracked pink asphalt, this beautifully coloured leaf matching the ground so perfectly. The contrasts in Jude’s photo this week are perfect. The atmosphere a mix that reminds me both of hot summer days and ice cream and calm autumn evenings… Maybe because it was taken in Barcelona. This photo gives us so much and I adore it.
