A Trip To The Pumpkin Patch

Hey there and welcome to today's post!

Recently I took a trip to a pumpkin patch and got some nice photos. It was the perfect Autmnal day out!

This is a little display house that was set up for the season, how amazing is this?

So this is the pumpkin patch! In a weird way I was expecting it to look like something from a movie, as though I would emerge from a clearing into a beautiful scene of perfectly orange and perfectly formed pumpkins hanging out looking spooky. What I did get was an assortment of pumpkins in their varying stages of life or death (i.e firm or squishy) in a big mucky field!  Still very cool to see and felt very Autumny! The colours were beautiful and it was pretty cool to see an entire field of pumpkins like that. 

The paths were littered with conquers. I love seeing these things!

Some of the trees were these gorgeous deep reddish shades. 

Not sure what this dude is but he posed for a picture, who am I to say no? Such skill. Very model. Much indeterminate species. 

Spooky picture with an interplay between shadows and light with leaves in the foreground? Check!

A grand bit of Irish countryside for you there now. 

In keeping with the theme of the day I took some browns and golds and did my make-up in the colours of the season! 

I also filmed a short little video of what I was wearing! My outfit isn't particularly special but I like making these styles of video. 

Hope you enjoyed today's post!

It looks amazing! The little road of pumpkins looks like you visited a Halloweentown! :D

I'm sort of jealous of you living in Ireland, it's on the top of my list of countries I want to see because I've heard of the amazing nature.

Haha, is that a lama?

Great video as well, you are very very photogenic!

I love your makeup!

The llama or alpaca is cute!

I love the pumpkins and little house! Quite witchy!

I would definitely like to live somewhere like that!

I think your outfit is pretty and suited perfectly this Autumnal pumpkin place! ^_^ I'm not sure but I suspect that modeling creature is a super classy alpaca. :'D

@Lesthis Gothworld The nature here IS wonderful :) Of course the rain and misery of the weather can put a dampener on outside adventures sometimes but it is a beautiful country. I think its an Alpaca! Awh thank you, haha funny that you mention that because I took photos for this coming weekend's blog post and I deleted a lot of them because I looked so derpy :D

@Lauara Morrigan thank you! I am very happy with how it came out, definitely a little out of my comfort zone :) Yeah the little house is so fantastic.

@Frilly Frenchie thank you and thank you :) <3

@Jade yeah I felt very excited for the day ahead when I put my look together :) I believe you are right, it is an Alpaca! He/She just stood there for ages, such a poser ;) Haha
