The beautiful sunny autumn weather we enjoyed last week is gone. Amsterdam is grey and cold now… Winter is coming!

atlas

My favourite part of the holiday in Morocco was a trip in the High Atlas range, the view was amazing.

In the mountains, I visited a few villages. One of them is an old fortified city called Aït Benhaddou, where films like e.g. Gladiator and Kundun were filmed.

One more post before I leave..

My cousin M’s horse Aladdin, a cute Icelandic horse who looks like a fairytale horse from one of old Nordic sagas.

One of the bridges in Amsterdamse Bos. Seconds after I took this shot, the sky opened up and drenched me and my camera.

mist

It was misty and grey today, but I still had a very nice walk in the forest, enjoying the crisp, cold air.


walk

The doctor told me the only way to get better is to walk. No hard exercise, just walk. And lucky me, the weather and season is perfect for walks!

 


autumn

Today was a wonderful autumn day with crisp air and sunlight. A day like this reminds me why autumn’s my favorite season! Happy to be outdoors again, I walked around in the forest the whole day. It was great.

“Never say there is nothing beautiful in the world anymore. There is always something to make you wonder in the shape of a tree, 
the trembling of a leaf.”
