The Magic of Nature

I’m looking out my window and everything is gray.
The lake disappear in the mist, but the autumn’s bubbling foliage makes me smile ❤

“If a year was tucked inside of a clock, then autumn would be the magic hour.”
~ Victoria Erickson

“Two sounds of autumn are unmistakable…the hurrying rustle of crisp leaves blown along the street…by a gusty wind, and the gabble of a flock of migrating geese.”
~ Hal Borland

“Anyone who thinks fallen leaves are dead has never watched them dancing on a windy day.”
~ Shira Tamir

“Wild is the music of the autumnal winds amongst the faded woods.”
~ William Wordsworth

Strange Visions of Mountains

I’m dreaming of wilderness and mountains. About shades of rugged and stunning landscapes.

I have seen a wonderful, scenic film about climbing Suilven, a remote mountain in the north west of Scotland.

It is a life-affirming film about a woman who has recently become a widow. The woman, Edie, decides to live out an old dream she shared with her father when she was young. A dream to climb the strange mountain, Suilven.

Actress Sheila Hancock was 83 years old during the filming. She says it was a great and challenging experience. Something she wants for everyone to try.
Sheila Hancock is the oldest person to have climbed Suilven back in 2018.

Hopefully, it’s safe to travel next year.

Robin Redbreast on Exercise

If you look carefully you will find a lovely nature where you least expect it.
Here on the army training ground you find Kingfisher among tanks and Robin Redbreast among soldiers on exercise.
Though the birds might wait until the coast is clear like I did yesterday 🙂
A few times a month you are able to visit this valuable nature area with a rich and varied animal and plant life.

Wandering

Lots of people were out and about enjoying the sun, wind, and the fresh air this spring. I caught the picture of two ramblers with the Øresund Bridge in the background.

The Pathless Woods

There are some trails in the forest, but they are not consistent with my old topographic map. My compass lies on my desk top at home but I’ll find the direction using the sun.

It was one of the first walks, I tested for my self in unknown terrain. I went west towards the wonderful sea.

The sun stood low in the horizon when I finally reached my destination, and I enjoyed the silence while I ate my last supplies.
Back again on the country road I found a bus heading towards the train station. It was deeply satisfying to find my way using a map and the slope of the sun.

Subsequently, I always bring a compass with me, but now also a phone with access to Viewranger and Komoot 😊

“There is pleasure in the pathless woods. There is rapture on the lonely shore. There is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea and music in its roar. I love not man the less, but Nature more.”
~ Lord Byron

Take pleasure in finding your own paths and leave only your footprints behind.

Happy walks 😍
