niskala arboretum in autumn 01.

we hadn't been to Niskala Arboretum since the summer and going back there on the last weekend of October was a totally different experience - especially since the first snow was covering the ground. my dear Nikon FM was able to get over the darkness of the forest with a very high iso film: see some of the results below.
Niskala Arboretum in autumn 01:

Nikon FM - Fuji Superia 1600.
the muddy ground was frost and my steps sounded beautifully on the wooden paths covered in snow - the atmosphere in the forest was overall very still and quiet.
P.S. more photographs from Niskala Arboretum in autumn to come soon!

  3. How beautiful!
    I mostly love the pictures off the wooden paths (duckboards is the name for them, I think).

    1. I am glad you like them, Joana! :-) it snowed a couple of times already, but it melted away quite fast, because it's still quite warm outside!
