I know I am not alone when I say “I love Autumn”. The season itself is magical. Less daylight, cold crisp air, leaves that change color everyday and shine in gold and crimson, dried crispy brown leaves that whirls to a blow of wind, Halloween and pumpkins – all of these reminds us of Autumn. And I am sure a lot of you agree with me when I say “it’s one of the best seasons to travel”. Offpeak price, less crowd and not forget the postcard perfect pictures. I’ve always wondered how Autumn would look like in other side of the world! That gave me the idea to share pictures of my fellow travel bloggers through this collaborative post “Autumn Pictures Around The World” so that other readers could also enjoy seeing them. So without any further delay, here we are! Go ahead and enjoy the autumn pictures.
“This picture was taken in Italian town Ferrara, a vibrant multicultural town before the war, including numerous Jewish Diaspora. On this picture you see a Jewish graveyard covered with ginko leaves that are quite rare in this part of globe. I went there for a walk and the atmosphere of this place was amazing – light, silence and colors made it absolutely perfect”
Bosnia and Herzegovina
“This autumn picture was taken in the Bosnian countryside between Mostar and Sarajevo. As we emerged from the train tunnel, the showers receded and a double rainbow emerged to greet us. Against a backdrop of autumn colours, it was quite a sight! The train ride to Sarajevo was even more beautiful than what everyone told us!”
“The autumn in the city of Bayreuth was discovered as part of my project looking for ‘100 Places to See in Germany’. What you see in the picture is a green silent park near the Festspielhaus/the Operahaus, on a rainy morning – a oasis of quietness and an explosion of beautiful colors”
“One of my favourite times of the year is fall; the time when the trees turn shades of yellow, orange, and red. Every year it has become a tradition to go hiking mid-fall with friends and family to take pictures of the beautiful leaves. Year after year, I am still amazed by the vibrant hues of the leaves. Every year looks different! This picture was taken in Mapleton Park, Moncton, New Brunswick.”
“My sister lives on the Greek island of Zakynthos, where I took this photo of autumn cyclamen in the grass under the olive groves. At this time of year in Greece there are still sunny days, but the tourists have gone home and it’s a time for the locals to prune their olive trees and burn the unwanted branches in piles, with the smell of wood-smoke in the air. The cyclamen that grow in the roots of the olive trees are the flower of autumn in Greece”

“About 2 years back, I visited Kashmir for
the first time and Srinagar’s beauty and romance left me in awe. Dal Lake was
calm and serene, the trees and the leaves looked so warm, and the flowers
bloomed radiantly. This was the lovely autumn scene at Nishat Bagh, one of
Srinagar’s spectacular Mughal gardens. Chinar trees that are seen all over the region
were eye-catching as the red and rusty shades of the leaves were beaming in the
sunlight. It was a memorable autumn; it was a beautiful Kashmiri autumn”
Autumn village scene and playground from a tiny village of Grayshott located in Hampshire, England. It may be worth mentioning the notable residents of Grayshott village which includes Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and George Bernard Shaw. It is also the birth place of Actor Colin Firth.
Beautiful autumn picture in the capital city of Tallinn taken during mid-October. Almost 48% of Estonia is covered by forest. And to travel around this beautiful Baltic country during autumn was such a bliss.
“Through the windows of the Gothic church as autumn breaks in Liechtenstein, the sixth smallest country in the world”
Perthshire in Scotland is known as “Big Tree Country” for certain obvious reasons like this. The whole county turns golden and crimson during Autumn that one could keep seeing them all the time, and never get bored of them. This picture is of Black Spout Waterfalls in Pitlochry, Perthshire.
With this, the part – 1 of Autumn Around The World series comes to an end. Stay tuned for part-2 which will get posted on next Monday. My sincere thanks to all those who contributed towards this post.
