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…)
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.
Her picture shows contrasts – of colour, of light, of time. Autumn and summer combined. She experiments with colour, with black and white, she shows us how simple beauty can be. Just a little brown leaf that fell on some flowers but wonderful in the composition.
It’s October! Can you believe it? Time’s going too fast, now the new semester is starting again and the leaves are also starting to change their colours. It’s lovely to see and I am so happy that you are having fun with this little challenge.
Tell me, what do you love to do in Autumn? Do you search for mushrooms, do you read in the morning light wrapped up in a blanket? Do you cook pumpkin soup? What do you love about Autumn?
