    So wonderful to see an old thread coming alive each autumn - this is in fact an old thread, and it springs to life each autumn, just as safe as autumn arrives.

    Great photography added - I have not been out a lot lately because of a LOT of extra shifts at work. I just haven't had the time - nor the energy to take pictures lately.

        Your images make me want to jump right into the glorious colour and immerse myself in it. No....... no jokes now, don't spoil the atmosphere!
        Autumn colour has been piecemeal hereabouts this year. The unusually mild, wet weather kept many trees green or with a touch of yellow for much longer, until now the sudden frosts have stripped most of them before they reached the fiery stage. When I was working in Norwich, a half-hour's drive away, I used to catch my breath at the sight of a really good showing of autumn colour against the sky, particularly when it was against dark thunderous clouds but lit from the sunshine behind me. It was almost worth going to work just to se it!

          I agree Ivy.
          In Normandy the automn was'nt as nice as it was the previous years. In Caen the exotic species were more or less colored but in le Pays d'Auge,apple tries and pear tries changed quickly from green to....nothing.

        We have skipped an Autumn. Now it is Autumn 2016, but some doesn't appear to have noticed:


        Leaves have mostly gone, but the roses are still blooming:

        There are even buds waiting to show themselves.

          The Blueberry bushes have noticed, however:


          Here is not much to tell you we are well into last half of September:

          Blame it on Global Warming??

            Why not blame it on GW...something is happening which is far more than normal variants of weather. August and September, so far, have been decreed the hottest in BOTH hemispheres since 1880s, summer and winter. Uhoh....

          Not much snow left on the mountains as seen from Borgund kaupangen:




          When will the be a new dusting? Who knows, it could be next week, or not before November.

            It is happening, the mountain crossing roads from west to east is closed by snow: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/indre/2016...ick_articles=2

            Oslo and the rest of Eastern Norway is ISOLATED!!

              Autumn is early this year.
              First Autumn storm expected tonight and tomorrow here in Aalesund: https://www.smp.no/nyheter/2018/06/1...d-16921735.ece
              Moving north along the coast in the next couple of days.

                We have been theoretically in autumn for some weeks, and after our long hot dry summer, this season is very welcome. The roses are quite confused and are sulking.

                And we have theoretically just entered summer, but it feels like autumn already. (At least for tonight/tomorrow only, I hope)

              Hurricane force gusts on the coast and in the mountains overnight:

              Only the colour of the leaves looks wrong for autumn

                What a splendid view from your verandah!!

              We waited for some winds up here in Trondheim too, but it was for the most part dead calm... but each run across the fjord was in a different weather through the night.

              It was like one night watch with all seasons repeatedly and in random order.

                Now autumn is really here. This is what Sula looked like yesterday:

                Today it is raining, blowing and warmer, so the snow on Sula is gone again. (For NOW!!)

                  We had a clear night with full moon and temperature went down to +2°C this morning in Stuttgart. -- But we should not claim after this long and hot summer...

                ARGH... the winter is coming. Thankfully, I have a lot to do to keep myself busy during those colder and darker days.

                In Trondheim, the temperature is steady at about 6 degrees +, with a LOT of non-stop rain.

                Last week, I was supposed to drive to TYNSET, but that particular day, they reported about 10-20 cm snow on the mountain pass to go there. With summer tires, I changed my mind.

                  The snow limit is creeping lower in the mountains.

                    I don't call it winter yet, so I guess the autumn thread will be the place to post a couple of autumn pictures from Straumsnes just meters from road E39 near Møkjavatnet
