I love fall

Winter is slowly creeping around here in Thimphu. And with every day, it seems unassumingly cold. You walk outside, it’s raw and chilly and you shiver uncontrollably. This is another time of transition.  I can feel us moving to another season, a cold winter. But quite wondrously, autumn, season of fall, is apparent only now in Thimphu.
Tree leaves turning yellow and falling on the ground, the sky becomes outrageous blue, all clear. Flowers withering. People, their cheeks turned red, are seen in woolen clothes and boots and mufflers around their necks to keep themselves warm. These are the pictures I took this autumn.

I don't know what's it...but I spotted in my office garden. This red nut, all its leaves felled, remained stunningly mesmeric.  
It was last week when I was at Tashichodzong...I saw maple trees, all turning dark red. I had no camera, then, so I plucked a leaf, brought it home. And here, it is.  
It's a gate light I spotted at Motithang. It's all covered by leaves that turned yellow. Autumn, you can even see here. Simply gorgeous!
This is awesome colour. Perfectly red-yellow.
To my wonderful readers, I wish you all a wonderful day!

  1. Beautiful pictures. We have the same love for nature, it seems. Photography is another passion I am very fond of. I am always mesmerized the artistic designs and colours the blend of nature and seasonal transition produce. Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful day, you too, sir. :)

  2. It is nice hearing about the passion you have, alike mine. In fact, I don't like change, transition; but at the same time, I am very much fascinated and awed by the beauty this transition brings to our life. Thanks for commenting, Langa. Keep falling in love with nature, experiencing ecstasy and beauty. Its wonderful experience!
