PICTURES: Autumn moments in Estonia

When it’s not wet and windy – the occasional heavy rains with a thunderstorm can be pretty aggressive – the autumn in Estonia can offer calm and tranquillity. Nature, with its various shades of red, yellow, orange, blue and brown, provides moments of infinite calm. Estonian World picked some images to convey the autumn feeling in Estonia.

Mushrooming is a popular activity in autumn. And when not lucky with edible fruit bodies of fungus, a simple walk in the fresh air is always enchanting (image by Magnus Heinmets).

Tartu Town Hall Square. This laid-back classicist old town is where my Tartu office lies. Nothing beats the foggy weather during the blue hours of short late autumn days. It’s soft, sweet and relaxing for some – and, yes, appallingly morbid for others.
