Since a few days, there's a lot of mist every morning, as often in this period of the year. The light is very good now we are in autumn, and creates huge sunrays through the morning mist... a very magic and peaceful atmosphere, I really enjoy these mornings.
The first snows had fallen in the mountains and the autumn colors down the valley were at their peak, creating a great color contrast with the blue sky... At the end of the valley stands proudly the mount Olan, with its 3500m. Despite the cloudless sky, the beautiful colors and the snow in mountains allowed me to realize some pictures that couldn't be done in another place in my country. It was a very good experience to be in such a place at this precious time of the year!
Saturday's morning was rainy and windy. I was in a beautiful forest deep inside the local woods, which is one of these natural forests that become rare in my region, because of the wood exploitation... In this forest, there's a lot of rocks (and mushrooms!) and some old trees have impressive roots, like these. Despite the "more rainy than foggy" conditions, I thought I had to try a capture of this old place.
Spent some very calming moments in this old swamp. It was good to take a deep breathe of the fresh morning air. The birch trees had their beautiful autumn foliage, there was huge sunrays through the early morning mist, slowly moving through the swamp, and the thing which looks like smoke in the middle is the morning dew/frost which is melting in the sun.
All that resulted in a very peaceful moment, I definitely like these autumn mornings.
A picture from the 15 September. I'm not sure about this because all the down part of the image looks not much beautiful to me, but that was the first time I saw such post-sunset sunrays and I thought it had to be shared.
This phenomenon was created by the shadows of storm clouds very far away.
