Autumn colours - Haustlitir

Autumn was just around the corner when I arrived in Shimla, and while the biggest trees were mostly evergreens, you could see flashes of autumn colours among them, especially on these creepers that wound themselves around many trees.

I took this photo on an interesting walking tour in the woods near the city. The sole nearly came off one of my hiking boots on the way back, and the next day we walked down to the bazaar to find a cobbler to repair it (see tomorrow's post).

Haustlitir voru farnir að sjást á ýmsum trjátegundum sem fella laufin, og sérstaklega var þessi vafningsplanta áberandi. Myndin er tekin í gönguferð í skóginum í nágrenni borgarinnar. Á leiðinni til baka úr göngunni losnaði hálfur sólinn undan öðrum skónum mín um og því fórum við daginn eftir niður á basar í leit a skósmið (sjá meira um það á morgun).
