The End of Summer

It has been official for a time now, but the end of another summer season is upon us, and we are left waiting for fall to arrive. The End of Summer brings with it many thoughts and feelings. One could argue that summer was bland this year (and that person would be in the right, mostly), but nevertheless the feeling of summer ease has been with us.

Now that the days start to grow shorter, rains fall into the lands, and winds of a new season swift through the air, it is clear, that we have to get ready for new sights ahead.

These hills above Mostar, are getting swept up with more winds as the days unfold, which you can see nicely in the following shot.



The end of summer has been followed with heavy rainfalls as well as moddy weather. The changes of the seasons are more and more apparent. 


Even though we're already in September, this quote fits well.
“August rain: the best of the summer gone, and the new fall not yet born. The odd uneven time.” ~ Sylvia Plath


What does the end of summer look like in your part of the world?

  2. Spring is good and so is autumn. Winter can be magical but I find summer uninspiring.
    Great photos as usual.

    1. I like autumn the most, but there is something to be cherished in every season, I think.

  3. Lovely photos evocative of the season. I am a summer person even though it was rather mediocre this year.

  4. Beautiful colors. I love the drama in the clouds (in the last two images)... fall is on it's way.

  8. Dear Mersad - Your photos are stunning as always, making me into different mood. I can feel the wind, cool air, and a little warmth from the setting sun. Autumn is my favorite season and I’d like to enjoy the gradual changing from summer to autumn.

  15. Beautiful images!!!
    Our end of summer here looks - hot and dry. The hills are brown from the third year of drought, the creeks are dried up. The leaves are turning. Fall certainly is upon us - my favorite season.

  17. I am in awe of how stunning your photos are, they just take my breath away. The colors, the details the scenery is all just amazing. Sadly with my camera gone I'm not able to document the end of summer here right now. Trees are starting to change color though and the air is cooler.
    Did you notice that the rock formation in the 2nd shot looks like the head of a cat.

    1. Thanks so much for your lovely comment. Too bad your camera is gone, I hope you'll get to shooting new images soon. The rock formation looked to me like a broken off pyramid, but I guess in all the shapes and lines everyone sees something different :)

  18. Das Jahr ist aber auch wieder nur superschnell an einem vorbeigezogen. Fragt ,am sich immer wo die Zeit geblieben ist^^.

    Deine Fotos sind wieder eine Wucht!!

    Hier merkt man es zuerst an den Tagen die kürzer werden und auch in den Wintermonaten werden die Tage kühler, und wir Bewohner tragen auch wieder Jacken und lange Hosen *gg* Der letzte Winter total anders (kälter und nasser) bin ich gespannt wie es in diesem Jahr wird und vor allem hoffe ich auf keine Winterstürme und Unwetter.

    Wünsche dir ein schönes Wochenende und sende herzliche Grüsse
