Autumn stroll in the National Botanic Garden

November 5, 2011

Although had visited the National Botanic Garden of Belgium this past August to enjoy the massive collection of various plants and flowers in its large greenhouse, returned there a few days ago for an autumn stroll through the vast park.

While the fall season is now well under way, we have been lucky enough to receive splendid weather with mild temperatures and lots of sunshine.

The best weather for a leisurely stroll through a park or forest, as well as snapping some photos of the beautiful autumn forest scenery which creates an explosion of yellow, red, orange and brown colors.

Next to evergreens or pine trees, the fall foliage of the deciduous trees in the park was a great sight to behold, orange and yellow being the predominant leaf colors that I spotted, not much red leaves.

As the sun already sits low in the skies by late afternoon, it soon became too dark to snap more photos, so I left after strolling a single loop through the park, not having explored some of the other paths.

The path

There’s not a lot of panoramic shots in this set, this because had the Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens mounted and neglected to bring any other lenses with me to swap. Hoped to capture more of the autumn atmosphere and colors with the 50mm prime which often helps produce terrific soft visuals.

Did however pack one of my Dollfie Dream for some photo shenanigans in the fall scenery, so you may expect DD autumn themed photos soon.
