Foggy Amsterdam Morning

It’s not every day you have the streets lining Amsterdam’s famous canals all to yourself. This autumn morning, I rose early with the hopes of getting a few canal reflection shots. To my surprise, it was a very foggy morning, so the reflections weren’t so easy to get, but the fog that enveloped the bridges plus the quietness of the morning made for quite an incredible atmosphere. I didn’t mind a bit when this man cycled into my shot; I love the movement his presence brings against a backdrop of pure stillness.

Amsterdam is so gorgeous in the Fall. Check out my etsy shop to see my collection of Autumn images from my many foggy, golden-leaf filled days wandering through beautiful Amsterdam.

I spent several days in the Alsace region already this Fall and became completely smitten with it within the first few minutes walking around. Although it wasn’t my first time to Alsace, it certainly hadn’t made as strong of an impression on me in previous visits, but this time – perhaps due to the freedom of having a car and having done lots of research – I was able to fully appreciate the incredible beauty and charm of the region.

One of the main reasons to visits the French countryside in September is to see the rolling hills of vineyards that seem to completely blanket the country. Of course, it’s most fun to catch them with the grapes still hanging on them, but the autumn sun would look beautiful on the grape vines with or without them. We visited Colmar, Strasbourg, and many other little towns in the area as the area firmly secured itself as one of France’s most enchanting regions!
