Autumn

I have always liked autumn for its colourful leaves and that’s exactly the theme of the following photos. Coulourful leaves, still green ones, those that turned yellow or even red, leaves that are still on trees and also those that had fallen to the ground. The last traces of colour before there are only black or dark brown trunks and branches.

These photos were taken in Malesicky Park in Praha while I was looking for geocaches at the end of October.

Poppy Field

There was a red poppy field next to our land and it looked like a red sea. Every single flower from this sea was also beautiful itself. Here are some details of the flowers as well as photos of the whole field. Papaver rhoeas (common names are also common poppy, red poppy, field poppy, corn poppy, corn rose and coquelicot) are quite usually grow next to roads but rarely in fields like this.

Late Afternoon in Prague Zoo – Part I

The weather these days is cold and sunny, only few degrees above 0 and that makes perfect conditions to go outside and take some photos. Yesterday, I went to Prague Zoo again, only about two hours before all the visitors would have to leave the zoo. And it was really cool, everything was lit with golden light, especially the exhibits on the southern hillside and there I took most of the photos. All these photos were taken when the sun was just above the horizon and therefore the colours are very warm.

The Indian Lion (Panthera leo persica)

… or maybe I should say lioness. Unfortunaly she is the only lion there, but hopefully a new male will arrive soon.

Malayan Tiger (Panthera tigris jacksoni)

I am just wondering if he is pracitising ballet or is it drunkenness?

Autumn Photos I

Here comes another collection of autumn photos. This time the weather was somehow cloudy and the sky was dark grey so there wasn’t much light but on the other hand it was a great opportunity to try some new things.

This photo is first try at improving one of my photos (from previous post). It is still not perfect but the samaras are now much sharper and the composition is better too.

Rowanberries is one of my favourites fall themes. I just love the colours of these berries, from dark red to bright orange.

This is like the first hint of autumn, single red leaf among green ones.

Again, it is the colours what I like about this photo and especially the combination of bright yellow and pink.

And the last one is little bit abstract.

Colours of Autumn II

More photos from yesterday when the sun was shining and there were no clouds on the sky and it was really beautiful view when I looked at all those colourful trees and bushes behind the house. I just couldn’t waste this great opportunity to take photos full of yellow, orange and red colours, which are typical colours for this season.
