Late Autumn


Kyvannet
Because my last post had so many snowy pictures, I really feel like I missed showing you how pretty the autumn has been! We have moved into winter so fast it has taken me by surprise.
Today was a beautiful crisp sunny day so I wandered down to our lake and took some pictures of the autumn colours before they all drop off into the lake!





In some places the edges of the lake are already beginning to freeze.







What a pretty spot to live beside, especially when the sun is out! But enough of this pretty photography - we are about to head away on a mission to Uppsala for the Swedish Multisport Champs!

Did you go for a nice swim in the lake this time?

We're going for dinner at your parents' place tonight! Unfortunately we haven't got any nasty foreign colds to return the compliment they gave me ;-)

I like the photos of the leaves on the ground. Very nice...

Beautiful! We're loving the autumn colours here but we've got none of this 'lake freezing' nonsense here yet!!

Though it did drop to -9 the other day (while we were out of town swanning around on the balmy San Juan Islands in Puget Sound). Don't think we can escape the reality of winter though for much longer. Definitely looking forward to snowshoeing and X-country skiing again eh?!

I can't believe the lake is freezing over already! Brrrrr. No swimming for me.

Now we are safely back in NZ we've got lots of time to reflect on how much fun we had in Norway - thank you again for that! See you in NZ sometime...

Mmm, swimming in the lakes doesn't seem quite so appealing now for some reason...

Today I chucked a big ice chunk on the lake and watched it skitter across the semi frozen surface, brrr!

Still, with -9 your lakes will be freezing soon too Neil and Fran! Hehe.
