I love walking in the forest in winter especially when there is just a little bit of snow covering the ground. The last week it has been impossible to get around on the paths were I usually walks because it has been quite icy. But yesterday there was a snow fall and a change in temperature so today I finally was able to take a little walk. On these walks it is always interesting things to observe or photograph in the surroundings. I always get so fascinated by how the leaves curl up in different shapes when they are drying out in the autumn. Some of the leaves still are hanging on to the the branch even though it is winter and they should have fallen to the ground. They are quite beautiful I think.
The past weeks I have been going through all my photos in the Lightroom archive. It was time to clean up and remove some of the photos. Some of the photos got a new edition and I edited some of them for the first time. As time goes by you see new possibilities in some of the photos. So todays post are some winter shots from last winter (January 2017).
Nature sure is beautiful. I was lucky the other day and found this lovely spider web with semi frozen droplets!
The winter is just around the corner and to day it was raining and snowing at the same time. The leaves has turned brown and fallen to the ground and left the forest quite colorless. But soon white snow will cover the ground and lighten up the surroundings. Today I celebrate the weekend with some colorful autumn leaves.
Have a lovely weekend!
I never get tired of photographing mushrooms in the fairytaleforest.
A really beautiful place to visit when in Provence is Valensole. It must be one of the most photographed spots on earth. I guess you have seen beautiful photos of the large, dark purple lavender fields with a lonely tree or a stone cottage. It is an amazing spot with the color purple and the strong scent of lavender. I hope one day to go back and spend some more time in these fields and take some amazing photos. For now just enjoy my summer memory from the Lavender field in Valensole.
When we stayed at the french summerhouse we rented in St Paul en Foret we heard some strange noises. We thought it could be some big bird or something in one of the neighbor houses. Well, after a few days we found out that there were some frogs in the garden pond. These frogs was a natural target for my new 300 mm Nikkor lens the next days ;-). Enjoy some photos of frogs!
In the french garden (Garden le Chesnaie, St Paul en Foret, France) there were a lot of flowers and were there are flowers there are also bugs, in this case two quite different bugs but very beautiful.
Sadly I do not know the names of these two beautiful green bugs.
This bugs antenna´s are so long they got outside my photo…..
