From early October, when Věra and I went for a walk around Karlštejn.
And, also from October, from the hill behind my apartment.
Ivy on the neo-gothic castle at Lednice (Moravia), in later October.
A dramatic sky over the gardens at Lednice. I was not sure whether it might start to pour, which would have made the planned hike to Valtice rather nepřijemný.
Jesse and I sitting in front of some sort of memorial at Lednice before commencing to hike. There were some gorgeous plantings nearby, but no good place to put the camera near them. Remind me to carry the tripod in the future...
I am standing near one of the numerous rybníky (fish ponds) outside Lednice. In the distance, although not particularly visible in the photo, is a structure referred to as the Apollo chrám. Věra was quite baffled when I told her that there was a chrám between Lednice and Valtice, as the term normally means a cathedral. In this context, however, it referred to some sort of fake temple. There were quite a few pseudo-Greek and pseudo-gothic temples and chapels along the way, most of which I photographed, but there is not much fall color in the photos.
Woods somewhere between Lednice and Valtice.
More woods between Lednice and Valtice.
I always find dark woods enticing (but refrained from leaving the path).
The rest of these are all from Vyšehrad, the park and fortifications not far from where I live (and which were directly up the hill from the dorm where I stayed in the summers of 2003 and 2004. I took these at the beginning of November.
