Autumn magic

Autumn, or fall, is one of my favourite times of the year. It’s a bit of a sad moment for those who crave the warmth of summer, whilst for the winter buffs, it’s an exciting time as the wait for the first snow begins. As for me, I love the autumn specifically because of the stunning colours. It’s always a treat to see the trees and shrubs shed their green in exchange for a multitude of colours, from warm reds to bright orange and crisp yellows. It’s a lovely time of the year to go for long walks in parks or in the forests. The colours and scents make for a simply magical experience. As a tribute to this gorgeous time of the year, I’ve compiled an essay of some of my favourite autumn/fall photos. Enjoy! :-)

Autumns are rather iffy in Amsterdam. It could be very wet and windy but there are also many sunny days when I have the chance to walk around and admire the colours of the trees.

See more photos of the Amsterdam canals.

Go out and enjoy the fall! Remember, go explore. experience. and be inspired! :-)

    What a treat Keith! I live in the US, SW and there’s very little sign of Autumn beyond acorns and that beautiful golden tone the sunlight has this time of year.
