Sauna house portraits

If autumn could be summed up in a picture, it would be this one:

Golden leaves, the sauna house and Ruby posing by the water.

Ruby-sauna.jpg

Simmie would rather explore

And swim than pose.

A week later, even more leaves have fallen off the trees,

Like whispers, and I see another portrait of the sauna house

Peeking out from behind the leaves.

  1. Your photos all suggest self-care: enjoying fading autumn beauty, the pleasures of pet life, and restorative sauna visits. Thank you, Lady Fi!

    • The sauna was built by members of the caravan club and only used by them… (Unfortunately). But I do like the extra photogenic element it gives my photos!

  44. “Hey, person in the Sauna house, what do you see out of you window?”
    ” The breathtaking beauty of mother nature, the fallen leaves that promise a new era, the silent ripples in the water and my dear Ruby.”
    “Hey, city guy, what do you see out?”
    “Why do you even ask? I see my peeping neighbour, hundreds of skyscrapers, multiplexes, noisy cars, smoke, frowning people and the daily hustle-bustle of the maddening urban. And you know what, I am very busy now. I have been working on my PC since hours!!! Bye.”
    Awesome shots. Thank you Lady Fi. I really want to spend some time there.πŸ’Ÿ

    Though I associate saunas with Finland and it’s expats, there is no question that this one in the picture warms up the portrait of Autumn. I often dub landscapes as portraits, after all Nature is usually, and rightfully so, the main subject -everything else elements of the story. These picture put me in my place, that being, I am, we are, smaller in the scheme of things. I guess the word would be ‘humbling’. And on that note, we had our first snow last night, 2cm; talk about humbling.
