A day in the country

As we have pretty nice weather at the moment, 19 degrees C (66.2F),  which is unusual warm for autumn time, we took a ride in the country to see if there were some coloured trees to see. We can't compete with the North East US but we saw some coloured ones.
We went to the "Hoge Veluwe National Park", that covers 5,400 hectares of woodland, heathland, peat bogs and drift sand. In the park is also an amazing Museum with art and a Sculpture Garden.
At the entrance of the park you can take a free white bicycle to cycle around the park and to the Museum.
So off I went!
Through the woods.
Where I spotted some pretty mushrooms.
And passed some heathlands, it was a bit hazy cloudy weather but that is just what fall is.
Tomorrow I show you the Museum and the Sculpture Garden.

  1. Lovely photos of trees and landscape. You seem to have more autumn colours than we do,our leaves making an effort to stay green I think! It may be different inland and further north of course,where they will have had frost.

    May I share with you what's been keeping me from reading and commenting on blogs lately?

    "This Restless Life: a study of Central Coast California parks through photography, interpretive collage and stories" is a book project of which I'm in the midst. If you have the time and the inclination, would you take a look at my short video at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1778487749/this-restless-life?ref=email to learn more about the project? If you like the project, would you share it with your network of friends and family? Thank you sincerely. (I have a link to the video at the top of my blog page too.)
