Autumn colours round the corner

Sunset in Skelleftehamn is 17:55 today. Therefore I didn’t have much time to shoot an after-job autumn photo today. But just some hundred meters away there’s a small boat harbour and I managed to capture the last sun beams on the coloured trees before the sun disappeared behind the opposite line of trees.

Probably not the best motive, but I love the autumn colours. As every autumn I have the impression that I soak up those bright colours like a sponge. Soon the trees will shed their leaves and even the first snow may fall in October or early November.

    I so love the autumn colours too! It warms my soul and leaves me longing for Sweden again. I think I will look through my albums with autumn holiday pictures again now ;-)

    Yes, it’s so nice with the colours, Annika. What a contrast to the grey coast at Långhällan.

    Ricarda. Der Herbst ist auch eine meiner vier Lieblingsjahreszeiten
    ;-) Aber ich freue mich trotzdem auf den Winter. Schönen Sonntag!

    Very nice! Over here in the inland of Sweden near Arvidsjaur there are not many leaves left on the trees. Still it is fairly mild. We had our first snow on Sep 23rd this year and some more snow is forecasted for this week. I hope we’ll have snow soon as we approach the darker period of the year. It brightens up so much when everything is covered with a layer of snow!

    One day we had -5 °C in the morning but now it’s quite warm in Skelleftehamn, too. Because of the sea we won’t get snow as early as in the inland, but when it snows in early we often get a lot of it. I’m longing for snow as well, it’s so nice and, as you said, it brightens up the whole landscape.
