This is just a little tribute to a season that is quickly coming to a closing. In the northern hemisphere autumn has once again produces its spectacular rainbow palette. Many places the colours are at their most intense right now, but where I am right now the season is already fading. Soon we move on to the next season, a season of white and blue. But before that, let’s linger a little more with the saturated palette of autumn, of the green, yellow and red spectrum of the colour wheel.

    Oh, you make me miss norway! 🙂 But in a good way 🙂 I love your photos so very much! 🙂 I am in singapore, and here there are no seasons, but there are lots of beautiful colors and trees! 🙂

  3. A beautiful tribute to a season I love. Thanks for sharing. H x

  4. Beautiful photos, Otto… it has been a lovely autumn!

  5. Hello ! Thank you for these splendid colours, shared with us. By here, il is always mostly green, but howewer, signs of autumn appear, some flashes of yellow, golden leaves. In a town, not so far, lights for Christmas are put in urban ( evidenty ! ) trees, at the end of september !!

  6. What a wonderful collection Otto. I especially love the one of the person walking through the trees :).

  7. Living in the south I miss autumn..I will always remember the way the leaves changed colors, the air smelled cool and knowing winter was soon to come.
    Beautiful photos, Otto!

  8. Beautiful! I’m still in the midst of the fall colors. I need to get out and really enjoy them while they last.

  9. Great colors and images, Otto! Our autumn is still in full color so thank you for the inspiration to get out and capture more photos!

  10. Mary says:

    I love the colors of fall, and I am enjoying photographing it all before it’s gone completely.

  11. Beautiful Otto. I love fall colours.

  12. bluebrightly says:

    They’re delicious-looking, Otto!

  13. That’s nice. Autumns just arriving here. A bit late.

  14. Stunning! The photos bring colors of Autumn I don’t see from my own window! I luxuriate in yours! What beautiful photos, Otto!

  15. Lynda says:

    So beautiful! Our colors here in Texas haven’t changed much yet, but it’s definitely a step up from Dubai. I will admire your photos until I can see my own changing leaves in Houston. 🙂

  16. Patrizia M. says:

    E’ un tributo fantastico, io adoro l’autunno e i suoi colori.
    Grazie per queste bellissime foto caro Otto.
    Un grande saluto, Patrizia

  17. Autumn is my favourite season for walking in the woods and this post captures the sights so perfectly…such lovely photos.

  18. Beautiful colours has autumn i love it, however i love spring the most.

  19. Lisa Gordon says:

    Such beautiful autumn color, Otto!

  20. giselzitrone says:

    Einfach wunderschön tolle Herbstfarben liebe Grüße von mir und Freundschaft.Gislinde

  21. Lovely colors, Otto. Beautiful leaves are my favorite part of fall and your captures really sum up the best of them.

  22. Suzanne says:

    What gorgeous colours – like nature is celebrating. 🙂

  23. Louis says:

    Splendid images Otto – beautifully crisp and vibrant. I particularly like the contrasts of colours, shapes and textures in the second one.

  24. Gorgeous tribute to the change in seasons–the cycle of life represented with such attention to the details. It must have been an inspirational meandering. Your autumn has been spectacular with color. Ours has limped along, waiting for the hard frost that makes the colors spike. Thanks for your interpretation of such beauty.

  25. Robin says:

    Wow! Spectacular, Otto!

  26. Fabulous color! I love the second one – the area of grey lines juxtaposed next to the biomorphic brightly colored shapes of nature’s leaves.

  27. We’re still waiting for the best of our colours – but with the tail of Hurricane Gonzalo whipping the leaves off the trees there may not be much to show!

  28. seabluelee says:

    We’re having a beautiful autumn here in Maine also. The peak of color is passing now, where I live. It will be white here too soon enough!

  29. clgphotos says:

    Beautiful images. The last one is my favorite. There is something about the grayness of the branches that really mike the colors of the leaves standout.

  30. My Heartsong says:

    While the photo of the woman walking in the woods is lovely, , I love the rythym in the branches above her.Great coour, it may be fading but going out with a burst of colour.

  31. TraveLusts says:

    Beautifully captured….

  32. shoreacres says:

    You’ve captured the variety of autumn, beautifully. Red, yellow and orange trees against a blue sky are lovely, but how much better to include the magenta, chartreuse, violet, and so on. I must have been powerfully impressed by the trees in Disney’s “Fantasia” as a child. The trees the woman is walking between seem quite alive, and a little ambiguous. Protectors? or threat? Perhaps only the woman knows the truth.

  33. mk says:

    So many songs have been written that parallel the glories of autumn and our lives just before our own winter years. It is so true, and I revel in both.

  34. Candace says:

    Glorious! I was just in the US Midwest last week and the leaves had barely begun changing, very disappointing. Your photos are what I wanted to see.

  35. Andrew says:

    Beautiful autumn colours — and what a wonderful sense of design in these compositions!

  36. LensScaper says:

    A great set, Otto.

  37. Roland Theys says:

    Good evening, when autumn show their colors and present beautiful pictures, colorful.

  38. So sweet. Not much sign of Autumn around north Texas—just hints, but the temperatures keep going back up to 88/90F (31/32C) even this late, so there’s not much color! So I’m glad to see pretty reminders that it does exist!!

  39. Here in England we are having a beautiful autumn. Without the hurricanes that others have experienced, and before the first frosts of winter, the trees are still dressed in their very best autumn gowns. I couldn’t live anywhere without changing seasons.

  40. Stunning shots Otto. What colors! Will look forward to seeing your photographs of the ‘white and blue’ season 🙂

  41. restlessjo says:

    Glorious, Otto! 🙂 I especially like the lady and the leaves.

  42. Autumn, yes one of the best times of the year (together with winter) with very special colors,

  43. I say Amen! Stunners all, Otto, but that second one is calling my name. Cheers!

  44. eagoingblue says:

    Very, very beautiful. Thank you.

  45. Elaine- says:

    aaaaah do not our hearts burn within us, as we walk beside the colours of autumn? 🙂

  46. YellowCable says:

    Lovely colors. For some reason, this year the colors of Autumn is quite vivid. The season has officially started while but it is just now the real signs are just beginning.

  47. Dalo 2013 says:

    Couldn’t agree more… It seems as if the beautiful fall colors were just beginning to flow, and now as temperatures cool and days grow even shorter, we enter the grey/blue/white of winter. Enjoy it now ~ and your beautiful photos are a reminder to live it up. Cheers!

  48. soonie2 says:

    Ah, my favorite season, so beautifully captured!

  49. themofman says:

    Yes, hold the drabness of winter at bay.

  50. umashankar says:

    A riot, a riot, a riot of colours!
