dark autumn mood

Capturing the dark autumn mood

It has been a while since something exciting happened on the blog front and I blame it on all sorts of non-productive tasks life had thrown at me. But, I guess, I should find out better ways to manage my time in order to keep this blog alive. Of all those boring tasks which kept me away, there have been only a few that I can call motivating. And my moving to a new place is one of them. The year 2018 has been a roller coaster ride so far and I hope to slow down a bit now that I have managed to find some time for myself. Meanwhile, the chilly days of autumn had rolled in as expected. As it has been raining a lot I thought this quiet me time would be perfect to capture the dark autumn mood.

The weather is so gloomy that I am having doubts about autumn being my favourite season. technically I am fall baby and I love the mellow autumn weather in India. On the contrary, except for the bright leaves I don’t think Nordic Autumn has anything nice about it. It rains and lot and the daylight starts to disappear bit by bit.

But despite being busy and being under the weather I have managed to venture out now and then to do some fun stuff. The highlight of the season should be the fun-filled mushroom picking trip to Nuuksio National Park with my friend Alexandra and her mom and a couple of quick trips to the central park which is located just 250 meters from my current address. 

I am so happy that I can find nature at such a short distance now. From now on, this is going to be my playground. Even though it is called a park, technically speaking, it is a forest with well-marked walking trails, horse riding tracks, and unlimited nature. 

But this post is not all about the forest. I am just trying to capture the dark autumn mood for a change here. Generally, my autumn pictures are full of colours. I am not a photographer but I love playing with different moods which I try to capture indoors as well. However, indoor photography is the hardest. For that one needs great props, lighting, and vision. Out in the Nordic wilderness, anyone can be a good photographer though. Funny thing, I get that a lot. People always compliment my camera or the landscape. Well, this just might be the truth.

I hope you enjoy these pictures.
