Whilst we wait for snow…

…and when days are dark

An autumn afternoon by the lake

every natural glow is a joy.

The Northern Lights

I trek distances under the flaming skies

The Flaming Skies

to capture images of the glorious sun as it descends.

The Sun

The moonlight a miracle

The Moon

as I dream of a long gone sun, near the campfire.

These are effects and moods of late autumn. I’m trying to make the best of the dark season, and hoping for the first snowfall.

      Luck comes with determination, I am an outdoor enthusiast no matter the weather:-). I agree Northern Lights are a must see, my photo doesn’t do them justice – difficult to photograph.

    Gorgeous photos, Cocoa. I imagine they are a great way to look for a lighter side of Autumn. I hope you get snowfall soon.

    1. cocoaupnorth says:

      Thank you:). They do indeed offer a lighter side as we continue to wait for snow at the southern part of the country.

    Finland, what a beautiful country. You have captured her beauty very well, especially the northern lights. I have visited Finland countless times but never got the opportunity to see the lights.

      Thank you Zambian Lady! Finland is really beautiful, and Northern Lights are a must see.
