50 shades of autumn colors

Helsinki, 6 degrees


I was drinking in the surroundings: air so crisp you could snap it with your fingers and greens in every lush shade imaginable offset by autumnal flashes of red and yellow.

This fall, Helsinki's autumn colors have been exceptionally beautiful! Just for fun, I decided one day to start a photo series named #50shadesofautumncolors on my Instagram account. The idea was to take nature photos of the autumn colors while taking my daily strolls with my baby girl. By now, the series' photos have received a stunning amount of over 4 000 likes! I'm so happy about the good response! If I have inspired at least one person to visit my beloved home city Helsinki in autumn, I think I've achieved something with my series.

Tänä syksynä ruskan väriloisto on ollut erinomainen myös Helsingissä! Huvin vuoksi päätin yhtenä syyspäivänä aloittaa #50shadesofautumncolors -nimisen kuvasarjan Instagramissa. Ajattelin, että voisin kuvata luontoa tyttövauvani kanssa päivittäisillä vaunulenkeillämme. Tähän mennessä kuvasarja on saanut yli neljä tuhatta tykkäystä! Olen todella iloinen hyvästä vastaanotosta! Jos olen inspiroinut edes yhden henkilön ja näyttänyt hänelle miten kaunis rakas pääkaupungimme on syksyisin, niin koen että kuvasarja on onnistunut.


What is your favorite autumn city destination? Do you enjoy autumn colors?

Mikä on syyssuosikkikaupunkisi? Nautitko ruska-ajasta?

I don't have a favourite autumn city destination but autumn colours indeed are lovely and I've tried to capture them as much as possible. unfortunately we haven't had much sun here but I hope I can make a post or two about our Estonian autumn and road trips. your autumn colours are wonderful by the way!
