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.

When Rain is Followed by Sun

April weather is always very unpredictible. One minute it is hailing and the next one the clouds are gone and the sun is shining. This is what was last Monday like here in Prague. When I came home from work, I was quite tired. Then I looked out of window and saw drops of water shining from ends of leaves and grass and I immediately knew it is time to grab my camera (which I keep fully charged with memory cards empty and therefore ready to go in no time) and go out. I suddenly felt full of energy as I enjoyed warm evening when the setting sun lit everything around me.

This photo was taken on a different occasion, when I had my camera with me and I saw these beautiful japanese cherry trees (also called sakura).

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.

Summer Flowers

Walk in a forest is a good way how to escape really hot weather with temperatures above 39°C. It wouldn’t be me if I didn’t take some photos there. The forests near village Bedřichov in Jizerske Mountains in the Czech Republic are full of beautiful flowers.

These foxgloves (Digitalis) grew near path and were quite easily accessible. Also it was the first time I saw white foxglove, every other foxglvoe that I have seen before have been pink and white. I find this colour variation very nice.

These small yellow flowers contrasted with green leaves on the ground and that made them very noticable.
