Storms

Now the autumn storms begin. Yesterday the wind reached storm and I am getting used to see trees tumbling around me. One day I had a delay before I left home and a huge tree had blocked the path I was supposed to take. It was a huuuuge tree and when it fell it broke a road sign and some of the tree shattered to atoms. I might have been lucky there.
Another day a strange sound came from behind. When I looked back I saw a tall birch fall over with a deep sigh. Nature is beautiful now, and tumbling trees does not prevent me from a walk in the forest 🙂

Nu begynder efterårets storme. I går nåede vinden kulingstyrke, og jeg har vænnet mig til at se træer vælte omkring mig.
En dag havde jeg en forsinkelse, før jeg tog hjemmefra, og da havde et stort træ blokeret den vej, jeg færdes på. Det var et kæmpetræ, og da det faldt, væltede det et vejskilt, og noget af træet var knust til atomer.
En anden dag hørte jeg en mærkelig lyd, der kom bagfra. Da jeg kiggede tilbage, så jeg en høj birk vælte med et dybt suk. Naturen er meget smuk lige nu, og væltende træer skal ikke forhindre mig fra en tur i skoven 🙂

  1. Wonderful pictures again! Here in N.I. we haven’t had the storms yet but it is a good time; a time when broken branches are felled by the wind letting in a different view. The rain washing the the leaves from the trees clearing the way for next years buds to form. A good time for us to settle back & to look forward.

    1. Dear Ash. Thanks for your nice words. Funny you mention next year’s buds. We have just reversed the fall 190 degrees, and found pleasure in the thought of nature’s foresight. Am I wrong when I think you are drinking cacao while looking ahead 🙂
      All the best,

      1. Enjoy whatever you are consuming, Ash while reading your interesting choice of books. I recall something about a Swedish author – I think that was a year ago –

    1. Hi James. Thanks a lot!! I think there are still some leaves left 🙂 I really enjoy storms as long as it is safe. I have been in the mountains with a storm coming in that’s anxiety provoking. I nearly got swept away 😀
      All the best,
      Hanna

  2. Yes, Tove Jansson! A book I dip into & I’m bookmarked to read a chapter called “Flying”. I’ll let you know when I get down from the ceiling!

    1. Haha! I see suitcases, children’s bicycles, one cradle, as well as letters and books on a ceiling in stripes of sunlight 🙂

      1. It really is a funny old world! You & Alen debating whether to praise Thor or Odin…….I’m actually reading one of the many books written by Bernard Cornwell about the Danes invading Britain! Do you have any spare helmets?

  3. Hej Hanna. There are some beautiful autumn colours in your photographs. But is sounds very dangerous there in Denmark with those falling trees. You should wear your cycling helmet at all times!
    I love the picture of the little chucky-hen.
    Cheers, Alen

    1. Hi Alen. Some people wear helmet in case they should stumble. I could make up many reasons for wearing a helmet 🙂
      Instead of a helmet I can pray to God and to Thor just as a precaution 🙂
      Thanks, Alen.

  4. I’m so glad a tree didn’t fall on you! Another collection of beautiful pictures from your walking. Autumn colours are so gorgoeus! 🙂

    1. Jane, sometimes it’s hard not to take repeated episodes as a warning. The wet soil where trees have their roots in the surface are very interesting places 🙂 🙂
      Thanks a lot for the compliment. It’s hard to compete with the colourfulness of Australia ❤ 🙂
      All the best,
      Hanna
