Autumn Colours

Mother Nature is an artist…

And like most artists, at times she likes to show off her talent and skill. That’s why she sprinkles her artwork everywhere right now. Well, it would be rude not to admire it, wouldn’t it?

But to really appreciate Mother Nature’s art, we have to look at the details. That is, the amazing colour combinations: some of them very subtle and sophisticated, others wild and unexpected.

      Thanks, Monica! This is the best time to see autumn colours here in Helsinki (when it’s not raining), and I wanted to capture some of it before it’s gone.

      Me too, definitely. I’d happily postpone winter for a few weeks (or months, or indefinitely) and just have autumn till Christmas.

    I Love Fall colors! Fall never seems to hang around too long here. It’s hot and then it’s right into winter. Too bad because I love the season and all the changing leaves. Someone once said that they hated Fall because everything dies but I never saw it like that. Maybe the beautiful colors distract me from thinking about that. Love the fact that I can wear sweaters and Fall jackets and not sweat! Your photography is fab by the way. Arlene from NJ

      Thanks, Arlene.
      Yes, the beautiful colours! It’s amazing: all the golden yellows and oranges and flaming reds… I wish autumn would last longer, too. Or maybe it seems so short because winter always seems to last forever.

    You have really captured the exceptional autumn colours we have this year in the city. The maple leafs with pink veins are my favourite. -q

      Thank you. Yes, the delicate pink veins are quite something, aren’t they?

    Tiina, these photos are stunning! I especially love the one with the bicycle. It is perfect harmony between nature and humans enjoying nature. Just gorgeous. Thanks for linking up with me!

      Thanks! I love autumn, and I always try to capture some of the colours before they’re gone. It’s such a short period, unfortunately.

    I adore autumnal colours, and it can be the most uninteresting shrub/tree/plant for most of the year that really lights up with almost pyrotechnical hue. I love these colours – they are so in your face and out there, I’m sure there is a lesson in there to be that little bit braver (I’m a woman who LOVES her grey tee shirts although I did buy a fuschia pink loop scarf in John Lewis the other day and have been obsessively wearing it ever since)

      That’s right! Sometimes it’s the most ordinary, totally plain tree that is the one that is flaming red and orange in autumn. There are a few of these flaming red trees just outside my classroom window, and I have been obsessing about getting photos of them. Unfortunately, they don’t look as impressive on photos as they look ‘in real life’…
      Fuchsia pink scarf sounds fantastic, and it looks great with something neutral. Who knows, maybe that’s the start of your love affair with colour?
