Autumn 2015 and Winter 2015/16

Post by Felis silvestris » October 14th, 2015, 10:05 pm

Autumn has started already a while ago, I think we need a new topic to share our autumn and later our winter impressions.

Let me make a start with some autumn impressions of Tallinn

Japanese Garden in Kadriorg

Image

City view from Kumu (colours are not quite real, the window was tinted) but I thought it looked nice nevertheless

and at Kadriorg Palace

Liz01 - it's not that far and neither so exotic that nobody could travel there! A short flight only and Tallinn and also the rest of the country is really beautiful and worth more than one journey!

For me this is one of the nicest views

Image


But your photos from Darß are beautiful too, especially at this time of the year!

No birds but mushrooms here

today at 14:00
On this branch two eagles are next to each other
A buzzard interfere, so an eagle flew away. A little later flew the second eagle. They've landed in the meadow. For me, out of sight.

my telephoto lens is not good enough. the eagles are so far away that you can not be seen with the eyes.
