The weather report said, no wait it was the newspapers who put it up BIG that we would experience a case of ‘indian summer’ this weekend. On the front page of several tabloids you could see a big sun and them promising 20 to 25 degrees celsius. I know, from earlier experience, that weather reports not always are reliable, so I didn’t count on any ‘indian summer’. After all it’s the 2nd of October today.
I thougth I should finally bring out my camera again and get some of those lovely fall colors in pixels. Even thought the hot weather might not occure, I thought it would be a bit sunny at least. 15 degrees and sun would be fine by me. I decided to home to the contryside, because fall is easier to document in the countryside than in the city.
What happened? Yesterday it was the foggiest day in a long time. When I woke up and went on my balcony I could not see the fjord. I hardly saw anything. The fog left around noon, but the cloudy weather stayed. And it hasn’t left yet (sunday evening).
At first, I was annoyed by the weather and the lack of sun. I wanted to catch the fall colors in shining light, not in a gloomy, rainy weather. But as the hours went by today, my urge to pick up my camera and photograph outpowered the gloomy weather. It stopped raining after a while and I decided to go explore the outside.
Who needs sunlight? You can get great photos in gloomy weather as well. After I came home, uploaded over 200 photos to the computer and started to look at them, I was pleased. All the yummy colors hit me in the face with a BAM. But it’s not only the colors that appeal to me, it’s also the shape of all the leaves and their veins. Isn’t maple leaves just gorgeous? And when you see a leaf looking just like a heart, you just have to smile, don’t you? At least I do.
Here is a collection of what I managed to photograph today. I’m very happy with the result. The explotion of colors and shapes makes me happy. I but the photos in mosaic, to makes things eaiser for me. You can click on the mosaic’s to see the photos bigger, thus more details.
