Winter is already very much present here in Finland, but let's once more get back to sunny days of October.
Sorsapuisto park in Tampere. That's a fountain in the background.

i like the atmosphere of your picture given by the waterfall and the backlight on the leaves. the statue seems to chcck this man who is taking a picture of this garden.

This modern Nordic man pushing the pram and walking the dog is very nicely framed by the tree and the statue. They have all formed interesting and slightly amusing silhouettes against the brightly lit area of the pond and the fountain. The man's hat and his posture when taking a photo makes me smile, but I guess most of us look a bit funny when taking pictures. I like the contrasts of the dark figures and the yellow and green leaves above them.

What light here taken in the foliage
A good compo against the light with main elements as mere silhouettes
An excellent moody picture
bravo, have a nice evening

i can see why this man(and you)taking photos in such a lovely day like this. Attractive autumnal colors from the tree but also nice environments in this park. Solid impression with the statue and the birch on each side of the man. Perhaps the whole statue should have been visible within the frame? but i am not sure. However a nice shot, captured during a lovely day, tfs!

hello kari ~
this is such a beautiful shot for so many reasons. i love the dark silhouettes against the backlit leaves ... the mist of the distant waterfall ... the female statue gazing down at the man with a pram ... the little dog ... and the man himself, caught in the act of taking a photograph?
clever composition and pov. all the elements are there, well done.
and, good title ~ thanks for sharing :)

First-class work. The back-lighting, silhouetting the man with a pram, the colours of the leaves, the misty water of the fountain, all make a very satisfying totality. Although I may have removed the statue partially seen on the right...

molto bella questa composizione, la statua che guarda l'uomo, l'uomo che fotografa e il cane che osserva la carrozzina, un bellissimo trio.
Le foglie dell'albero sono splendide sotto questa luce.

Nice effect of the sunlight on the foliage creating a perfect ambiance of solitude. Beautiful photo.

Hello Kari - Attractively back-lit foliage and moving water make a lovely seasonal backcloth to the silhouetted man and his baby-buggy. A lovely shot with a relaxing atmosphere. Warm regards rosemary

Very good autumn colours here. The man, standing against the light adds a good effect, like a silhouette against the water. providing a living balance to the statue beside. A very attractive scene.

This is such a beautiful photo and I love the idea of a modern age dad taking his little bub down to view this wonderful scene of tranquillity. Is that mist or part of a cascade on the right? In any event, it adds an excellent element to the photo. The yellow tones contrast superbly with the silvery blue ones and the man and pram in silhouette are very striking. And I like the statue looking on at the two. Excellent work. When do you leave for Aus? Must be soon.

Fine backlight view of Sorsapuisto Park in autumn, with the fountain mist and yellow-green leaves saturated, then the silhouettes of the statue, man, dog and pram (We call prams "strollers' in the Colonies).
PS: Zion's Emerald Pools often have water year round.
I will post a view later...
