Hi there my Hivean friends and followers!
I was just back to my Czech hometown of Opava for a few days and the beautiful sunny weather gave me permission for a little bike ride around some of my happy places over there. The Radun Wetlands are one of them and I will take you there with me through this post ;)
Located just a few kilometers outside of Opava, in the village of Radun, the Radun Wetlands are a tiny nature reserve that consists of a network of ponds and streams. Thanks to its unique aquatic ecosystem, the place is home to a surprising number of animal and plant species. Frogs are the most common (and also noisiest :D) inhabitants of the ponds but an observant nature lover can spot many other creatures dwelling there too. The wetlands are situated on the outskirts of the village so while most visitors head out for the renowned Radun Chateau, the most famous and dominant landmark of the village, it´s usually just a few locals taking a walk whom I encounter at the ponds.
It´s a really nice and peaceful natural getaway and when autumn takes control over the area, it puts on a spectacular colorful show. If you came here for some cool autumn colors, please be my guest ;)
I hope you enjoyed this little photo collection dedicated to the vivid colors of the Radun Wetlands in autumn. I know a lot of my friends and followers here on Hive live in tropical countries where they have summer pretty much all year round so these shots can be somewhat special and exotic to them ;) To be honest with you though, I am actually not so happy with the quality of some of the pictures. The light conditions were pretty good during the shooting but it seems like all the colors and patterns of the foliage were a bit too much for my old cellphone camera to handle. Time to get a new one I guess...
Thanks for your attention everyone. Have a nice day.
