Very good pictures. The one thing that makes Autumn so nice is when you see the leaves turn into the different colours before they start to fall.

I was looking at one yesterday, and admiring the different blend of colours
of gold, rusty, and shades of oranges, and yellow that made it look so peacefull.    

But my camera was at home.  :chuckle:

Indeed, the streets were far to empty for a Saturday afternoon \ early evening...

Riga looks so much like Tallinn from those photos. I guess they are only a four hour drive apart so thats not entirely unexpected.

Tallinn is cheaper though.  :-X
