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




Winner of Week 13

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.


Winner of Week 10


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.

Festival of Leaves 2016: Week 10

Dear leaf lovers 🙂

The sun granted us some hours of her shine today and the leaves gleamed and sparkled. It’s the most magical time of autumn. I absolutely love your pictures and I also loved your music suggestions. Some new songs to add to my playlist 😉

Now I have a new question for you: What are you reading right now or do you have any good autumn book suggestions? I’m falling in love with “A little life” by Hanya Yanagihara right now…

Thank you all for taking part and have a nice week!

I’m doing NaNoWriMo right now and if you wish, you can take a look at my other blog verenacave.wordpress.com 🙂

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
