Oh Autumn!

Autumn is my favourite season. The light is just magnificent, the smells of the cold breeze at night and the delicious roasted chestnuts, the changing colours of the leaves and the first rains.

For me, autumn means to take out my wool scarf and hat, shorten days but an incredible light. Clouds, some rain, leaves everywhere, photographs of all of it.

But, unfortunately, this year is not going really well. Autumn weather is not still here, the heat is incredible high compared to years back, the rain, the scarf and the hats are missing and it doesn’t seem like they’re going to be coming anytime soon.

It’s a shame what we’re all doing with our nature, our Earth, our future. Still, autumn is my favourite season, even if it doesn’t exist anymore in Madrid.

Ps: this is Aranjuez (a great place to photograph autumn) a few years ago.

Autumn

Autumn is my favourite season. The infinite tones of colours on every tree, the leaves on the ground, the sky in grey and blue, the smell of roasted chestnuts coming from street vendors, that chilly mornings and evenings… The list is endless. But what I love the most about Autumn is taking photographs of all of that. Especially the trees and leaves.

Leaves

All the photographs were taken in the gardens of the Royal Palace of Aranjuez, a place I love to visit in this time of the year to walk amongst the leaves and trees, and of course to take a lot of photographs.

And what better accompaniment than listen to “Autumn leaves” by Miles Davis.

Otoño es mi estación favorita. Los infinitos tonos de colores en cada árbol, las hojas en el suelo, el cambiante gris y azul del cielo, el aroma de las castañas asadas en los puestos callejeros, ese fresco de las mañanas y las noches… la lista es interminable. Pero lo que más me gusta del otoño es hacer fotos de todo esto. Especialmente de los árboles y las hojas caídas.

Todas las fotos las tomé en los jardines del Palacio Real de Aranjuez, un lugar que me encanta visitar en esta época del año para andar entre las hojas y los árboles, y, por supuesto, para hacer muchas fotos.

Y qué mejor acompañamiento que el “Autumn leaves” de Miles Davis.

Looking through the keyhole

Through this arch there’s a kingdom you’ve never seen, a magic kingdom where arches have the shape of keyholes, where trees chalenge the laws of gravity, where the world is seen in infinite shades of black and white.

Through the arch

A través de este arco hay un reino que nunca has visto, un reino mágico donde los arcos tienen la forma de un ojo de cerradura, donde los árboles desafían las leyes de la gravedad, donde el mundo se ve en un matiz infinito de blancos y negros.
