(I LOVE this photo! Can you spot my mountains behind the branches?)

Enjoying Nature on an insanely beautiful November day! It was so beautiful I was in awe... Sometimes I can't believe I'm so lucky to live in such a wonderful place... to have all this natural beauty surrounding me... to be able to enjoy the Seasons with their stunning colors and their wonders! Autumn is a season I deeply love, the colors and light have this mystical, painting-like quality (yes, we do have "painters' light" here!) that makes spending time in Nature and beholding this breathtaking, soulful beauty a deeply spiritual and meditative experience. An immense joy to the heart and soul.

Hello Anna
Beautiful autumn images you show ..... with blue sky.
The weather here in Denmark (Jutland) is gray and dreary with a little drizzle + 10 degrees, not very good weather to photograph in.
I've seen a collage on your blog with cats, I surprises animals have a Danish Swedish farm dog of 3 years, my old katblev killed last year because of age and illness, she was almost 17 ​​years.
Thanks for your comment.
Wishing you a great Wednesday :)
Hugs Hanne Bente

Nice photos!I really like the red leaf tree!

Juanita said...

So beautifully said. I always need to remind myself, every morning and day, that I am really lucky to be able to live in such a beautiful place. My eyes need to soak in as much as I can, while I can!

By the way, what fruits are those on the tree?

Hilde said...

Wonderful photos, Anna! I love the first one too :)
The scenery is breathtaking, you are truly lucky to live surrounded by such beautiful nature.

Have a lovely day :)

Annuk said...

Thank you Pinelia! :)
That red is amazing, isn't it?

Juanita, that's so true... We need to remind ourselves every morning and day! The Alps are so beautiful!!!
That's a persimmon tree (in Italian we call them 'cachi' or 'kaki') in the picture... the fruits are edible, but many people keep them ornamentally on the trees through the winter. Good for the birdies! :)

Thank you Hilde! :)
Yes, I am! And I feel so thankful!
You are very lucky too... the Norwegian sceneries are breathtaking!
Have a lovely day too!

Sweetest Anna!
I can truly understand why you feel overcome by a sense of appreciation of your surroundings... it's awesome in the truest sense of the word. Leaves you breathless! About your last post - you would have loved it here a couple of weeks ago when we'd just had the first major rainfall. Just outside the bungalow where the kitties reside we have a lavender garden. It's been bone dry as you can appreciate and no smells filling the dry air - but oh my lord - after a nights rain... the air in the lavender garden was FILLED with the scent of lavender. It was unbelievable... And with the plants having soaked up the rain it was just beautiful.
Also thanks so much for stopping by the blog today and your always sweetest words :-)
Big big hug,

Annuk said...

Sweetest Joan!
I KNOW you can appreciate this amazing beauty... there is such a holiness in both nature and animals.
I SO loved your comment... I can really imagine that heavenly scent... I can almost smell it! How wonderful it must be to feel all that freshness and smells in the air after so many months of draught!!!
Big hugs to you and all the furry gang! :)
