Winter signs

The countryside... 

the top spot for a nice walk and 
an endless source of inspiration. 

I could spend hours and hours just exploring the surroundings 
and playing with the sunlight which I can’t always adjust 
to my photographer needs.

The first winter signs are already evident and it’s amazing 
how quickly we go from season to season.

I noticed that even if you regularly stroll along the same path, 
each walk is unique if you keep your eyes open! 
Nature changes constantly and each time you wander,
 you could discover a different scent, detail,
or wildlife emerging from nowhere! 

Dried, withered plants and branches, 
tree shapes, ancient woodlands and olive groves tucked away 
around modest hamlets caught my attention while I was 
crisscrossing the fields of this enchanting swath of land 
we are lucky to have nearby. 

Autumn colors are in 
their full glory and took me on a relaxing nature trail 
through the trees, foliage and still life. 

A fig tree ...
 It could easily be taken for a watercolour painting, 
couldn’t it?


My detective walk broke up the monotony of a homeschooling day
 and I felt excited to discover nature’s secrets and delights.
To discover that behind still life is hidden the eternal 
circle of life 
and nature is always fascinating!

Old farmhouses, ancient properties and neglected gates 
along my walk…

An elderly gentleman has just quenched his thirst 
with the crystal-clear spring water. 

My…harvest at the end of this rejuvenating walk.

I'm leaving you...
Time to light the fire !!!

Keep smiling, keep dreaming!
