Dramatic Fall Landscapes

I love moody skies. They can give a great dramatic effect to images. By moody skies, I mean skies that are filled with heavy clouds, but where the sky still peaks through, and gives nice rays of light. Like in these fall images below, the gaps in the clouds gave light to different parts of the landscape, and made the warm autumn colors glow.

These images were taken on the Grabovica Lake on the drive up north from Mostar. As you can see, the sky is very moody, but the clouds do give way to the blue sky, that is shedding it's warm glow back to earth.

I love the small island with the trees on the right bottom side of the first image.


On the left side you can see parts of the small village called Glogosnica. The valley is very calm and not much goes on. A newly dug up road can be seen on the other side of the lake.




I parked my car on the side of the road and went somewhat downhill to get these shots. This road leads further into the mountains to our weekend-house.


Has fall taken over your part of the world? I love it when the colors start changing, and lushes greens become warm orange and yellow tones.

  9. Dramatic indeed! These are so beautiful. I especially liked the second one, with that low-hanging cloud and the sun lighting the fall colors. And the video clips and photos in the video were breath taking.

  15. The leaves are just starting to change colour in my part of the world so in a week's time we should see autumn's natural beauty. We will not match your scenic views though.

  19. These are really pretty. Your foliage is a pretty uniform yellow/orange. In New England, there are more colors, from light yellow to orange to bright red.

    1. There will be more colors here too, as the fall season progresses more. I live in Southern Europe, and autumn takes a bit more time to reach us. :)

  20. So much of the scenery could be compared with the Scottish Highlands although some of the crags in the video were rather more alpine than we have here.
