walking in the woods

Fall smells so good. The rich, earthy smell of wet leaves and colder nights, mingled with the comforting scent of woodsmoke from a chimney being used for the first time in months.

I feel the urge to be outside and in motion in the crisp air, to walk and climb until I am pleasantly warm and breathless.

I could spend all day outside, hiking, leaving civilization behind (and it never really is far behind in this densely populated part of Germany).

As it is, I try to make time to explore areas within an hour’s drive. These photos were taken two weeks ago on a day trip. We hiked from the Müngstener bridge up to Schloss Burg.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my phone photos from the day already. These days I seem to shoot as much with my phone as with my ‘real’ camera.

What’s your perfect day? Similar to mine or completely different?

    How beautiful! I love the scent of woods too, especially after a rainy day. My perfect day would be similar to your, including the knitting in candle light🙂
