Amsterdam is stunning in the fall. A light haze has set in above the city, complimenting the earthy hues that mast Amsterdam’s cobblestone streets. Golden sunlight slips through the trees, and sparkling shadows are cast along the canals. There’s a buzz in the air as people scurry a tad bit faster on bikes and scooters to avoid the city’s new, frigid state.
I truly can’t believe it’s mitten weather again already, but this past weekend, an undeniable chill arrived in Holland. While summer is my favorite season, the cold air of fall makes my lungs feel alive again. And so while the foliage slowly dies, I’m awakened by chilly fingers and crisp oxygen in my chest. On Saturday, following a leisurely brunch with my girlfriend Sophie, I decided to take a long stroll around the city to enjoy the autumnal sunshine and capture Amsterdam’s golden glow with my camera.
Here are a few photos from my walk :)
October is flying by, and soon enough we will all be back hibernation mode with only a few mere hours of sunlight. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be spending lots of time outside, trying to absorb as much vitamin D as humanly possible. I hope you’re enjoying the beautiful fall weather as well, wherever you are in the world :) If you’re in the US, drink some apple cider for me and pick a pumpkin!!
I’ll be quite busy over the next few days, as my birthday is on Thursday and I’m flying to Italy on Sunday. But I’ll be sure to keep you updated, and hopefully there will be more fall sunshine photos to come :)
