Autumn City

We have had a period of exceptionally fine autumn weather, though now it seems to have come to an end. This was shot last Sunday, not so very far from the town centre.

PS Have a nice week-end!

Ser at høsten har tatt tak i byen. Nydelige farger som dessverre varer så altfor kort. Trille syklene i nedoverbakke? Ja, hvorfor ikke :)

Ønsker deg en finfin helg!

The colors are beautiful and the wall leads your eye along the sidewalk. Nice view!

Serenity. I'd love to be walking near that street today.
Here it is 34 C.

Yes, all the bad weather is tracking to the south of you - guess how I know. But we don't really have much in the way of autumn colours like your photo.

Høsten sniker seg over oss med spennende, sterke farger. Flott presentert av deg!
Ha en super fredda'!

The perfect picture of autumn, Rune!! I love the golden tree, the sunlight through the leaves the shadows on the sidewalk! Such a gorgeous capture for the day! Hope you have a great weekend!

Beautiful autumn colors are the only thing that keeps the edge off approaching winter! Lovely scene.

Great composed, Rune, I love the way everything (the light, the curve of the road and the direction which the two people with bikes walk and look) lead to the right and the fine autumn colors and -light.

Ahhhhh, autumn, one of nature's finest raptures!

Birdman said...

I love to stand in the sun on fall days, taking in the last rays of warmth.

Gry said...

Flott bilde! Jeg likte den muren på bildet også!

God helg!

Beautiful light here!

Det er ensten så en ikke helt greier å ta blikket fra slike tre i høstdrakt!!! så vakkert at det nesten kjennes fysisk faktisk.

Vakkert vær på min kant av landet også, og det nytes i fulle drag, så masse på tur nå, at en har vel snart bilder til å fylle en lang vinter :-)

Anneklem din vei Rune.

Flotte haustfargar, og dei kjem så flott fram pga lyset. Og veret denne hausten har jo vore utruleg fin, nesten eksemplarisk:)

It's not often it strikes me that any of your photos could have been taken here too - but this is a familiar scene, a familiar atmosphere. For all its simplicity, one can sit and look into it too.

Looks as if you have hills as well as foliage. I miss hills. But at this time of year, the trees take care of it.

Valerie said...

A wonderful capture - lovely rich autumnal colours.

Beautiful colours my friend.

All I can say is - had a blogging break, but now back in Harness, and reviving my blog.

Wenche said...

Åh, så nydelig dette var Rune. Hvor er det tatt ?? Flotte farger du viser her, skikkelig høststemning :0)

Lara Neusiedler @ Uproad said...

Sara said...

This is so beautiful...I can almost imagine I am walking along this curve in the road.

Viola said...

Noe så nydelig, solen som skinner så vakkert over bloggen din fra headingen, og dette nydelige bilder, hvor lauvet skinner så fint, det lyser så å si opp! likte de mørke lauvene i forkant som gjør at lyset i det gule lauvet kommer så godt frem! og en herlig dybde i dette bildet ditt Rune! :)

Petra said...

The yellow glow looks nice, autumnal colours will never lose their attraction, won't they?

Darlene said...

Rune, I abolutely loved the shot you did Saturday of the chestnut tree. The contrast of the red car was a nice touch too. I hate the thought of chestnut trees being cut down. I hate cutting down any trees for that matter. I have a thing about beautiful trees and it would be a particularly bad thing to cut down this particularly lovely one.

I love the gorgeous autumn colors that are depicted in these last two pictures. Fall is such a beautiful time of the year. We don't really experience this remarkable change where we live and it is too bad since I love the fall colors so much. But, I can't have everything when we live in the desert and I do feel so much better in this climate.l We have been here for 22 years now, the longest either of us have lived in one place, so it really feels like home to us. We even have purchased our cemetery plot so we will be here forever. (Yes, only one plot as we will both be buried in the same one. We kind of liked that idea.

If you go over to my blog to read it, you will have to scroll down about a mile or so until you reach the place where you click on comments. My crazy computer just doesn't space well and neither Dick nor I know how to fix it. I hope is does better next time.
