Autumn is sneaking into the cities and this month we asked you all to support us on the mission to celebrate urban moments and details in its glorious light. Why rush from building to building when autumn offers so many new colours, perspectives and splendors for us to take in?

Your many different approaches left us speechless and in awe – the cover picture by @malvikabehal already being proof of this. Some of you were still in vacation mode and discovered great spots in foreign cities, some stayed in their hometowns but stepped away from their routines for a moment to fully take in the urban vibes and enjoy the moment. You discovered a palette of cool tones which, paired with the warmth of the last hot, summery days, make up for a lovely combination.

Here, we want to honour some of our favourite urban splendors that were tagged for our Instagram challenge this month – so without further ado, let’s dive in.

Seeing the beauty of urban structures is often easier when travelling to a foreign city. However, this marvelous pastel skyline captured by smile4travel, we are convinced, surely is appreciated by locals and tourists alike.

September spoiled us with many more warm and sunny days that are just perfect to cruise in style like fraustern_ or enjoy some ice cream infront of a splendid panoramic view of your favourite city like step_by_stephography.

Clearly, a city doesn’t need an ice cream cone to make up for a great picture (although it can’t hurt either). More urban splendors occur when the city itself becomes art! Whether through architectural finesse as captured by leg_berlin or through artistic embellishment like the one laomapupi discovered – we love an artsy break of the norm.

Another splendid sight was delivered by meandmypenf who, by adding up layers and colours, transformed the concrete jungle into delicate, almost vitreous patterns.

augenbl.icke on the other hand, prefers the actual jungle – often found not far from its concrete counter part in greenhouses and botanical gardens.

Even when the sun is hiding behind grey September clouds, splendorous moments can still be caught on film. Which has been proven by _marvn with this elegant, perfectly moody shot.

Besides taking wonderfully moody photographs, autumn weather also allows us to explore new perspectives and surfaces. zita.pirnosova gives some inspiration on how to play with urban art and outlooks.
