Weekly Photo Challenge: HAPPY

The surest way to reach happiness is to accept the things you can’t do anything about, and to change the things you can, and want to. I can’t do anything about harsh winters or scorching hot summer temperatures here, but I can choose to spend my summer holidays in a colder climate, and I can travel southward in winter.

The following series of photos can vouch for that.

  1. Really a fantastic happy collage… πŸ™‚

    The “na brdu” just amazing… πŸ˜‰

    You must choose your battles carefully – use ones energy where you can make a difference – the things you can’t change you should steer clear of – to use the energy in them is wasted… πŸ˜‰

        • I normally get up around 6. The days are getting darker and shorter, but the darkness that is now has some charm to it (the darkness is still fresh and haven’t lasted for months). The light during autumn is very special and the colors of the foliage is perfect for photographing.

          • Me too, around 6 – to damn early in this dark.. this is a very poetic view on early autumn darkness :). Our weather got sour all of a sudden and the weekend is promising rain… not fun.
