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




Festival of Leaves 2016: Week 9

Hello my dear leaf lovers!

This morning when I looked out of the window I couldn’t see anything. Fog everywhere. Then I looked at all your stunning photographs and that made me so happy! Thank you so much for all your entries!!

I have another little question for you this week. What music do you like to listen to in Autumn? At the moment I have Simon and Garfunkel on my playlist 😉

Have a lovely week! xxx



Here are my pictures for this week 🙂img_20161030_115302


Festival of Leaves 2016: Week 4

It’s officially autumn now! You can feel it in the air – it’s getting cold quickly and as you have shown the leaves are starting to show some lovely colours. To mix the format up a bit I thought, I’d make a little galery of you beautiful entries:

Have a wonderful week!

Festival of Leaves 2016: Week 3

Hello my lovelies,
I’ve been away for a week and just had the wonderful pleasure of looking through your entries! One week without my mobile phone, more or less between beach and forest… It was amazing. Also, I could already get some glimpses of colour in the leaves.

Thank you so much for taking part this week! Those are the entries: Geriatrix, Dawn, Roberta, Julie, Simone

This week’s winner is Roberta!

I hope you had a lovely weekend and you are well



Festival of Leaves 2016: Week 2

We all had to look really close to find coloured leaves this week. They mostly blushed only a bit because of the summer or the lack of water… Soon, though, be patient, my dear leaf lovers!

So soon there will be the time of scarves and hot drinks and cool evenings in front of the fire with leaves sailing from the trees. Let’s just celebrate this beautiful time of late summer!

Thanks to Geriatrix, Dawn, Julie, Roberta, Restlessjo, Alegna for taking part! You are amazing!

Geriatri’x’ Fotogallery: Week 1


What a mystical atmosphere. I imagine walking through the woods and spotting little fairies on stones that are covered in moss… The sun touching them with thin fingers parting the dark around. A lovely picture.
