I m lucky enough to enjoy nature and crossing seasons recently with all its glory. Today, I am just back from the trip which we made up on to the mountains. Me and Barış were kind of thinking since Spring season has already arrived to Istanbul it was time now to chase after it on the country site. So we have decided to visit my cousin who happily lives with his wife on the Bolu mountains since more than 10 years… It took us 2 and half hours to reach to place where we headed. But the season we come across was nothing like Spring. Was it matter really? Noooo!!!! After seeing all the stunning beauty of nature, smelling the fresh grass and smoky woods I said to myself “nature is always welcoming, pure, stunning and beautiful with all sorts of shapes and colors” so I don’t need any specific season to like it more. (even though some changes provides all the fresh energy to get excited like Spring!)
So while we escaped from city to load fresh air into our lungs and get away from all hassle and bassle we ended up by piles of landscape and country-style photos. Since my article named “Enjoy colors of spring while you can“ was published at Freshly pressed wordpress site, I was already overwhelmed by all the great comments from everywhere in the world this weekend. So I must admit that was a huge driving factor for me to capture more photo shoots from the mother nature and share with the people who loves nature at least as much as I do. So I hope this time, you will like to walk with me into the woods by these photos. Enjoy!!
This is Zeytin (Olive), my cousin’ s mountain cat who lives a great life at the farm. He is really huge by the way:)
This baby cow is only 2 months old and so adorable and loving
There is a high positive energy in this farm which has surrounded by the love and respect to nature
I m looking outside from the window
Chasing spring looking at the fresh green grass on the way
Although the trees are not bloomed with the flowers or green leaves yet, the shapes of empty branches are so interesting for photography
The wooden exterior of the farm warehouse has been main architectural element of ecological life style of country living in all cultures same as in this village
Since Abant Lake is very interesting for the tourists some village man helps people to make horse riding around the lake while they enjoy scenery
Abant crator Lake lies in the altitude of 1,328 m (4,357 ft) which is pretty high from the sea level and is frozen during winter time
Now April is the time the lake melts back to be green again
Under the fluffy white cloudy sky, the water gets interesting shades and provides beautiful scenery for interesting photography
Where I live is Turkey, a country which lives 4 seasons in a year but surprisingly may also live 4 seasons even in one month as you may see in these photos!
