I bet you didn’t expect to see a post full of colorful fall leaves in May did you? As the rest of the world is transitioning into summer, the Southern Hemisphere transitions into winter. I can’t even look at Pinterest anymore, as all the spring and summer pins leave my mind super confused as to where I am and what time of the year it actually is.
I think I’m starting to adapt to this whole season reversal thing, and I’m learning to embrace the changing seasons (namely fall/winter). Luckily, finding little patches of autumn heaven, as you see in the pictures of this post, help me out a ton. Last weekend we had absolutely gorgeous weather (which has luckily continued on into this week), so Derik and I went on a photo adventure to find the best leaves Dunedin has to offer. We strolled around the botanical gardens and found the most perfect little maple glen, literally bursting with vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows. Goldmine! I also grabbed my macro lens to take a few closeup shots around the garden.
p.s. I’m super bad at throwing leaves. After trying three times Derik and I gave up. You’ll see in the second picture of me with my back turned, I tend to throw leaves in a big ball instead of beautifully scattered around me. At least now you know what I’ll be practicing up on for the next couple weeks.
