Sunday, October 3
Back garden, 15:00
Waking up I immediately notice the completely different colour palette that nature uses in Finland. After the stark beauty of Iceland I look out of the window at the bright oranges and reds of the autumn leaves.
Iceland has a very specific and probably unique colour palette in which blacks and grays shine blue in the light and greens hide in the background.
In the afternoon I walk round the house and photograph this tree which sits in a neighbour’s garden and radiates with the bright shades of Finnish autumn. I look at my feet and realise that I will spend tomorrow morning sweeping the leads away.
The temperature feels warm and the wind feels non-existent, so the day feels like a perfect Autumn day. This will not last very long. The arrival of autumn means that winter will come running over the horizon very soon.
Too soon, if you ask me.
