We continue our nostalgic trip to Estonia, and today we want to remind ourselves how gorgeous Estonian autumn was. The Nordic country of forests simply cannot be not splendid in red and yellow.
What does autumn in Estonia mean for us?
Black ground, tractors and crows flying up and down the moment the tractor passes by. Morning freshness with slight mist crawling from the forest. A carpet of yellow, green and red leaves. Lazy cycling walks during the early sunset. Gloves and hats. Mushrooms and long walks through the forest in search of the elks (not a single seen till the very last day). Prolonged shadows on the surface of the old soviet Narva buildings.
When it seems that the whole world around turned one shade warmer.
Just in the middle of the autumn, we crossed the country to get to Matsalu National Park, where we were desperately trying to find a trace of an elk. Even if we’ve seen none, we still had a chance to observe tender roe deer, wild boars and foxes! I wish we had had more descent equipment for such photoshoots. Matsalu is a huge national park, a perfect spot for bird-watching, but also a place where you can enjoy this overwhelming but delicious stillness.
