Fall Colors (III)

336A0555


Amazing fall colors at Römerholz (to see Römerholz spring photos, click here). It looks like this is the last week when one can still shoot fall photos; most leaves are gone now. One can still find a few suitable "photo spots" here and there, but I reckon it's frost and winter themes for a few months now.

Just as the other cranes

Just as the other cranes

Call to the injured one: kurli, kurli!

When the autumn fields

Are crumbly and warm ...


So I, the sick one, hear the cries,

The noise of golden wings

From dense, low clouds

And tangled underbrush:


"It's time to fly, time to fly

Over river and land.

You see, you can no longer sing

Or brush the tears from your cheeks

With your weakening hand."



by Anna Akhmatova, translated by Judith Hemschemeyer.

Anna Akhmatova (1889 - 1966) is recognized as one of the greatest twentieth-century Russian poets.


Fall Colors (II)

The weather decided to cooperate this week and we have enjoyed the beautiful, sunny fall days. And today - oh, my gosh! Twenty degrees (that's 68 Fahrenheit to you, my American friends) and the deep blue sky as only the crisp fall air can produce! It was a sin to stay indoors, so I grabbed my camera and out I went for a couple of hours. And I wasn't alone, let me tell you. It seemed that all the Winterthur inhabitans were in the woods, and there was such a feeling of joy in the air. We were all friends, you see; three weeks of rain and fog does that to you. Anyway, here you go: a few pictures from today,enjoy!

One of my favorite things in the world is to go out with my camera on a sunny October day and enjoy the beautiful fall colors.

And these wonderful things can be found just behind our house, in the woods. We are truly blessed to live in a such a beautiful place!

And what best way to end a fall walk than sitting by the fire and sipping hot cocoa?  Or stronger drinks, by any means, if that's what you prefer.
