One October Morn... by zorm One October Morn... by zorm
...mist hung low, sunrise gilded the autumn leaves, and blaablaa other poetic tosh.
I love how there doesn't exist a proper expression in English for fall colors. It's tunturi != mountain all over again.
PEOPLE INVENT SOME NEW SINGLE-WORD NOUNS INTO THIS DARN NONDESCRIPT LANGUAGE. :noes:

Turku, Finland.

Kiitti. :D

Itse asiassa vanhempi englanti (ns. Middle English) on reippaasti sanastoltaan rikkaampaa ja sieltä löytyy jonkun verran vastineita pohjoismaisille ilmiöille, kunhan vaan jaksaa kaivella. Tunturi on "fell", hyvin sama kuin ruotsin "fjäll". Ruskalle en kyllä mitään järkevää käännöstä ole vieläkään löytänyt ('fall foliage' kuullostaa tyhmältä). Huomaa vaan, että kieli ikävästi köyhtynyt enkkua puhuvissa maissa...

Joo. Oon itekin havainnu, että englannissa oli joskus ennen parempi sanavarasto, mutta juu, nykyään siellä on vähän köyhää. :XD:

autumn itself I think serves the best word for fall colors...but the main hue I feel when I see this picture is gold crimson sienna...

Such a warm embrace I feel when I see this image.

Yeah, it's lovely outside when the sky is blue, the trees orange and red, the grass and stalks the color of burnt yellow, and the golden light of the evenfall spreads above everything... Autumn is probably my favorite season, when it isn't raining buckets. ;)

I remember it was quite chilly on the morning I took that photo. So much for warmth... XD

Thanks ^^

The cerulean skies resemble the coldness of that morning...but in this picture you mostly see the mists...which reflect the warm colors of the leaves...

ahhh I wish I could visit Finland one day. Such beauty.

Kyllä. Englannin kielen puutteellisuutta on monesti tullut pohdiskeltua miedohkon harmistuksen vallassa. :|

Kuva on joka tapauksessa mahdottoman hieno, niinkin mahtava että putosin penkiltä ja mykistyin pitkäksi hetkeksi.

Nice picture.. I like how you made the colours come out with lots of contrast in the foreground while the background is more dim. :)

Hard to believe that's an actual /photo/, WOW. Love how vibrant those colors are, and the mist just adds the right touch of softness.

When I first saw this in thumbnail, I thought it was one of your digital pieces. It had the same detail, the same rich colours, and a beautiful sense of layout. :love:

Now that I know it's a photo, I'm still blown away. You've really captured something striking and beautiful here. Like I said, the colours are gorgeous, and the way they interact with each other and with the fog… lovely.

Thanks! Like I said to someone else, it was a really rare morning. :) If I catch an interesting scene, I usually take a patch of photos from various angles and select the best. One of those advantages of digicams.

As for layout, I do use the same golden ratio rule as in my drawings. Guess it's the easiest way to get a composition that doesn't look lopsided. :D

Welcome. :hug: I don't blame you. If I had a camera, I'd be snapping away at mornings (afternoons, evenings) too. You can't help but get a good shot if you take lots of photos, right? ;p

Ah. That would be why they have a similar layout then.:paranoid: I've always liked it.

How do you say it in Finnish? Perhaps we can cobble something together with a transliteration.

Ruska. It's related to the word ruskea which means 'brown', originally 'ruddy'. I've occasionally used 'browning' or 'reddening' as alternatives while talking about it in English.

Yeah, I suppose English doesn't have anything like that that wouldn't be terribly confusing.

Maybe its cause Britain is so grey bohohohoho
Jk I just have this assumption in my head that England is really really grey and dreary v_v Not sure why. Or maybe its London. idk.
In my language for making new words we just describe it and thats what its called. Which was funny when I got a translating dictionary (english to-). I looked up ear phones all excitedly (testing its knowledge) and it came up 'ab izni ziatu mesemI' which means '[thing you listen to] that goes in your ear.'

I suppose it was one of those mornings you get maybe once a year or more seldom. There's often mist about on autumn days, but the fall colors aren't so bright every year.

Sometimes English does seem a bit fail. It wouldn't be quite so bad, but all the really good words no one bothers to learn. Like 'ichor'. I love the word 'ichor.' But no one wants to learn or invent descriptive nouns these days.

Yeah, it's a shame, really, because a language is an art of its own. Terry Pratchett at least still does that, though. XD

Of course, I'm guilty of inventing new words frequently in RL, but Finnish quite encourages you to that. You just add suitable suffixes to existing word bodies, and ta-da.

Terry Pratchett is great. I'm just getting started on reading his work and I am quite enjoying it. I actually read ichor in one of his books and that's what reminded me of it. ^^

I invent new words too sometimes by assuming they already exist. It's amazing what isn't in an English dictionary that could be. Laziness!

"Young Men's Reformed Cultists of the Ichor God Bel-Shamharoth Association"... heh. I love Discworld; no matter how many times you read the books, you still keep spotting hitherto unnoticed jokes and plot twists, not to mention the colorful language.

Have you yet picked up his newest, non-DW novel Nation? I hear it's written for younger audiences, but it's frankly better than some of his latest DW books. Really funny, even if it has its darker moments.

I haven't yet. I've got to get more of his books. Right now I'm working on Good Omens, the collaboration with Neil Gaiman. It's so hard to find time to read with all my classwork! I'm hoping to read more during winter break. I'd really like to start on some Discworld and there are a few other things on my shelf that I've yet to finish. I've noticed most of the authors I like are NOT Americans, ha ha. Why are my fellows so juvenile and vapid when it comes to writing these days? :( Don't answer that!

zorm Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2008   Digital Artist
Heh, I'm hogging on Gaiman's remaining novels at the moment. I discovered him a year or two after Pratchett. Should finally take a peek at Sandman too. x(

American authors... well, I gotta say most of my favorites are British (probably has a great deal to do with the humor aspect, as Finnish and British types of humor are scarily close to one another). There's however such a name as George R. R. Martin that's fighting the top spot with Terry, and he's American. Writes kind of gritty, sarcastic fantasy with amazingly realistic characters and complex surroundings. You could always check him out.

Time! Argh! There's always too little of it. Ever tried listening to books instead of reading them? I spotted that loophole when I was working on a huge art project somewhere around the age of 15. Became much less boring to spend the dragging hours by listening to books on tape. Now there are CDs and mp3s of almost anything available, and it's a great way of increasing your book balance while being tormented by something tedious like laundry. ;)

I do love the British humor. I like Japanese humor too though and it's very different. (Not shitty Japanese humor like in mainstream anime, I mean the hardcore absurd humor in things like "So Long, Mr. Despair"). I often get annoyed with American humor because it's very cliche and because for some reason I rarely see main characters who can laugh at themselves here. I'm sick of all the hard, grizzled toughguys who can't do better than sarcasm. It's like an endless stream of batmans. But I'll check out this George R.R. fellow if you recommend him. :)

As for books on tape, I'm not sure if I'd be able to listen well enough. I don't absorb things as well by listening as I do by looking. But it'd certainly be worth a try!

And definitely look at Sandman. Some of the artists involved are pretty wretched, but the story is very good. Mostly dark, but I enjoyed it that way. He isn't in the first few books, but I loved Destruction when he showed up. ;)
