Late Autumn Days in the Mountains

Late autumn brings with it a certain melancholy. Nature is going into the deep sleep and the days just keep getting shorter and shorter. Especially for people at work, it seems as if the days only consist of nights. While I fully enjoy winter as a season, I still like to linger in the beauty that is autumn.

That's why I chose to venture out again into nature, and search for signs that autumn is still in the air. And what better place to do this then the mountains.

From afar there seems to be much color left in the landscape.



Coming up closer a different sight greets me. The once vibrant colors are giving way into the darkness.





But bursts of leaves that won't give up are also to be found.


We still have nice days here in south Bosnia and Herzegovina.


There is some solace in knowing that winter greens will stay throughout the winter months.


Soon, it will be sights like this next one, that will spread through the lands.


Thank you all for stopping by.

What does the transition of the seasons look like in your town?

  1. I do not understand when I am writing to you, the comments keep disappearing! Yes you managed to capture the last leaves still hanging onto some trees and capture wonderful mountain views. Since you gave me some advice I have joined the B&W community and flowers, butterflies and birds on google + and am learning a great deal. Many thanks for your help.

    1. So glad to know that I could help. Don't know why your comments are disappearing. Maybe you need to wait for everything to load before you start typing. I have experienced that on other blogs as well.

  2. Deine Bilder sind wieder superschön! Ach und nerven dich diese blöden Strommasten in den wundertollsten Landschaften nicht auch immer? Der Hauch Romantik, der so einem Bild innewohnt ist dann immer ein wenig.....äh.....hin. Auf der anderen Seite find ich echte Fotos besser als zutodegefotoshopte, wo nix mehr wie in der Realität ist.

    1. Ich versuche Strommasten immer in die Landschaften einzubauen. Für mich ist as am wichtigsten das sie nicht über den Himmel ziehen, ansonsten klappt das sehr gut. Du hast recht, wenn man das alles wegzeichnet in Photoshop, und zu viel bearbeitet sieht das schrecklich aus.

  3. A nice collection of images. The period after the glory of autumn color and the arrival of winter's snows is often not my favorite time of year. Tom The Backroads Traveller

  8. I am very impressed by your photos.
    Especially the power poles in the otherwise so grandiose landscapes are very impressing, a remarkable contrast , very great.

  9. i like that winter green photo. so beautiful.. here there is not much change in seasons, we can tell it is changing because the flowers are smaller and some of the leaves fall off as new ones come on. it is a subtle change here. and we are not using AC

  10. Amazing places, I'd LOVE to explore!! I love the last pic so much. <3

  11. Lovely captures of the end of Autumn! Here the season is coming to an end as well, the ground is full of dead leaves and the leaves that are still clinging to the trees are dried up. I love winter though and hope to see some snow when I go to central Europe next month! Does it snow a lot where you live?

  12. Such beautiful fall scenes/colors and superb captures as always, Mersad!! Thanks for sharing the beauty of your Autumn world!! Each season has its own beauty -- we just have to look a little harder sometimes!! Hope your week is going well! Enjoy!

  13. Hi Mersad,
    The views of the mountains are magnificent.
    Where we live, Atlanta, Georgia (USA), is hilly, but not mountainous.
    We are surrounded by tons of trees and they have lost almost all the leaves.
    I will post some photos to share with you what my neighborhood looks like.
    Thanks for sharing your world with all of us.
    Have a Beautiful Day!
    Peace :)

  14. really neat-shaped leaves on that tree close-up. our oaks are turning now that we've had several freezes, frosts and even a snow fall. lots of yellow tinges turning to browns.

  15. Most of the colour is gone here now, although there is the odd tree hanging onto its autumn beauty but one gust of wind and it will be gone

  16. Autumn ends here with the leaves blowing off the trees leaving the skeleton to stand against the often grey skies we have here. Lots of rain in the winter, perhaps a little snow that will never last long. The grass stays very green and the evergreen trees and shrubs continue to add life to the landscape.

    How lovely to see the forest with the last leaves and the open fields of your country. Thank you for sharing.

  17. Fall is my favorite season. I loved looking at your photographs of your countryside and how it looks. Never have I been there. I can only dream about travelling there; but you never know what is in one's future.

  19. So exotic to see mountains for us who live on the plains. The cold plains. The ground is white here, but just barely. Places in the US have had several feet of snow already. The snow belt seems to have been shifting the past few years. I love to visit and see the beautiful land where you live. :)

  28. It looks ugly here. No pretty fall colors because it doesn't get cold enough. Instead the leaves turn brown and slowly fall off all winter. It means leaves have to be raked up until Spring. The last leaves fall off as the trees are budding. It's very flat here too. No elevation along the Texas coast. That's why I always enjoy seeing pictures like yours. Thank you!

  29. I come from Arizona, so I am used to arid landscapes. I find beauty in them.
    Your work is wonderful!
