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! 🙂

The Netherlands

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.

  • Hi Dan,

    September usually is a great month to travel in Europe as there’s a good chance of great weather. It’s one of my favourite months (along with May), weather-wise. Packing can be tricky as it can be warm during the day and cold at night so my advice is to dress in layers.


  • Hi Keith,

    Thanks for the awesome photos. We are heading to Poland at the end of September and I’m wondering what the normal weather has in-store for us? We now live in Malaysia and surely can’t dress the same way? Haha. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

  • what a great idea to go out for a long walk in the parc! I will do that coming weekend! Not alone off course :-))

  • 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.

  • What a glorious tribute to Autumn my friend. Oh how I would love to ride on the Jasper tramway!! Look at those views!!! The Ksiaz Castle in Poland beckons to this castle lover!!
