Autumn walk around the Epema State

Around this time of the year it is wonderful to walk around in a wood or a park. With my mother I enjoyed a stroll through the park around the Epema State in IJsbrechtum, The Netherlands, on Sunday. It wasn’t really sunny, but we were surrounded by lots of autumn colours and mushrooms.
