Vliegenzwam - Fly agaric

Visiting gnome country

Yesterday afternoon I went out to photograph autumn. Looking for beautifully colored leaves, pine cones, acorns and especially mushrooms. It wenst to Haarle, the Sprengenberg. That is a beautiful part of the Sallandse Heuvelrug. When I parked the car I thought: ir is so busy! I don’t like that at all, but luckily it wasn’t too bad. Usually I don’t take the marked routes, then you don’t notice it that much. I like to avoid the walking groups with ladies who talk loudly throughout the route and discuss the latest gossip. I also don’t like running, screaming children, barking dogs, etc. The chance that you will photograph something beautiful is gets very small.

The smell of the forest, the colors, it was wonderful. On the whole route I looked for beautiful scenes on the ground.

The mushrooms in the green moss are a beautiful sight. That was exactly what I was looking for.

Beautifully shaped pine cones are also worth a photo.

But then I saw something I hadn’t counted on. Completely hidden in a cove these gnomes. They live at number nine. The laundry is hanging outside. And I thought: they exist! 😉 Nice!

Like icing on the cake, I came across the flock of sheep at the end of my walk. I had a nice chat with the shepherd and petted the dogs. I also took a lot of pictures. That may be a separate blog. It’s a beautiful sight, all those white sheep. And a black one. 😀
