October in the eastern heartland of Russia is the ultimate interplay of light and shadow. Even on the gloomiest, rainiest day Nature shining from within, lit up by the golden leaves, whether still on the branches or covering the streets and puddles like the lushest of carpets. And yet, even the warmest and brightest of fall sunshine is sliced through by the deep, dark lines of newly naked branches.

These could have been painted in Manitoba as easily as Russia!
Appreciate it is not the same, but there is still something familiar to paintings by the Group of Seven in the approach to capturing the landscape.
Thanks for sharing!
Well, Canada is practically Russia 😉
I KID, I KID!
Also you made me look up Group of Seven – now I have been thoroughly sucked in.
Haha! No offence taken. Heck our winters are pretty much the same soo… 😉
Delighted I prompted a new art exploration. Enjoy!
I especially like the last two!
I think the last one is the first one to feel properly autumnally chilly… BRRR!
True. I love the way you feel the vastness in the nature more in the autumn when there are no leaves. Quite an opposite picture to the second last one with the grand manor and the autumn bright leaves!
So pretty! I wish we had a little more sun going on here, but the colors were lovely and epic while they lasted.
I just got back from a day in the country. It is depressing how everything turned icy and gray overnight, or at least it seems that way, bc I was away for almost two weeks before 😦
I’ll have the first one, pls.
Get your grubby mitts off 😉
First come, first served. Tough titty for you.
Titty, pillow fighting… you don’t deserve lovely Russian art 😉
No. If I did, I’d be doing it in stilettos.
I think you’re secretly Russian and not German at all 😉
Aww, I think you’ve entered a whole new level of protectiveness ever since Riga!
Ladies! Ladies! ***breaks out some booze***
Yeah, yeah, any excuse! 🙂
Aww, so similar as Latvia’s Autumn.
I don’t think a lot of Latvians will take kindly to that comparison 😉 (even if it’s true)
🙂 You are right! But I am Latvian and I took it kindly, because actually Russian art and culture is very rich and have some influence in Latvian art, literature, culture, too, even if we don’t like it. 🙂
I am FLOORED!
Ah, autumn – easily the best season, those colours are beautiful 🙂
At its peak it really is the best. Too bad that’s passed now…
Love any Russian art piece with birch trees in it. I think noone paints birch trees like Russian painters do.
So beautiful, my aunt used to live there, too bad I was an infant when she left!
Well, it’s decidedly nicer in pictures 🙂
