A photo from an autumn hiker trip in the Bükk mountains. You can say it's nothing, but empty benches and a table again, but for me it's much more personal. It was shot near Gyula Source (Gyula-forrás in Hungarian) in the Bükk mountains, 2 kilometers from a ranch named Bánkút.
And what's the personal, You may ask. Well, the source was named after my great-grandmother's brother, Gyula Erdey, who was the most famous hiker of the Bükk mountains in the 1st half of the 20th century (died in 1956), he wrote 3 books: hiker / tourist guides about Bükk mountains he loved so much. He was also the 1st steward of the famous Bánkút alpine hut and the director of a hiker club. 9 years after his death, in 1965, the club officially gave his first name to this source, closed to the ranch he worked on so much.
Seems like there's a lot of Uncle Gyula's blood in my veins, because I love these mountains as much as he did - although I don't have a membership in the club (which still exists), I like to hike with my father and sons only.
You can see the source itself here, on a site about Bükk mountains.
Weather conditions: misty, rainy. PP: almost nothing except framing, signing, re-sizing. I hope You'll like this, from my side emotional capture.
Somehow similar, but different image of this scene may be seen on TrekLens.

This must be a wonderful place - especially for you! Sources always have something mystic, something touching and your photo transmits this very well. I like your photo and your note very much!
Greetings from grey and rainy Germany - and have a nice Advent season!

Félelmetes, és egyben gyönyörű helyszín. Hallani hallottam már róla , de még nem láttam. Az a köd , az olyan sejtelmessé teszi ezt az őszi képet. Gratulálok! Jelentkezz !!!!! :)

Most jó nézni ilyen képeket, amikor kint minden olyan szürke. A magas nézőpont fura, kicsit légifelvétel-szerű hatáshoz vezetett, de ez csak plusz érdekességet ad a képnek. Tetszenek a színek és a hátul az erdőt is elnyelő köd - persze, az ember a családi forrásról már csak jó képet csinál!
Boldog, békés új évet kívánok!

I think the carpet of autumn leaves sets the atmosphere!
Effective point of view making the naked trunks in the fog a fine background...
A pleasant colourful composition, the empty benches will probably have to wait until summer for visitors!
