The other afternoon we went for a walk to the nearby forest ... and the foliage is surely about to turn in bright yellow, red and orange! The leaves are forming a colorful mosaic all over - Such a pretty sight.
Mushrooms are peeking here and there after the rain, the air is filled with scent of moisture and wet moss ... That is the smell of autumn for me!
The Hareskov forest has special pathways for mountain bikers, with very narrow trails that go up and down the small hills in the middle of the forest.
There is also an old pilgrimage route, that is crossing this forest - the yellow sign on the blue background marks that route.
The pathways for the horse riding are marked with a white horseshoe sign on the side of the trees.
We met a few families, a bunch of joggers and a biker on our way ... The rain had just stopped, so I guess later on we could have med a few horse rides as well.
Autumn is a favorite season of mine ... So I cherished the afternoon in the forest - the sound of leaves under our feet, the soft light falling through the colored trees, the quiet atmosphere, talking and listening ...
I have edited these photos in Lightroom alone - I created a Lightroom preset called nj_October Forest, that I have used to all these photos, with minor adjustments afterwards. October Forest-preset warms a bit up the colors and rises slightly the saturation. It adds a soft vignette, and has some extra sharpness to bring out the details of the leaves. This preset does not affect or adjust the exposure at all.
You can download the nj_October Forest-preset here - It is a little Fall Break gift from me to you,
Wishing you a peaceful weekend,
