Ruska Photo Contest: Explore the Autumn Leaf Colors - Halti

Halti #Connectwithcolors photo contest

Explore Autumn and its Colors Galore!

We look forward to autumn, the season when the magic occurs in nature and the leaves turn into elegant, flaming colors of red, orange, yellow, and brown and the trees get ready for winter. The transition from summer to autumn is a perfect example that changes can be amazing. In the Finnish language, this stunning autumn foliage is called ‘ruska’. The colors are very bright and intense, creating the perfect spot for that perfect shot, or most of the time, simply an immeasurable and breathtaking view that a photo can't even justify.

Whether you live in the countryside or the city, explore the stunning autumn leaf colors around you and share your favorite autumn Instagram photos with the hashtag #connectwithcolors and you could have a chance to win a HALTI PALLAS II Warm Set including Pallas II Warm Hybrid Jacket and Pallas II Warm X-stretch Pants, worth 398€ MSRP. Let your creativity shine!
