In some parts of the world, it's the start of autumn (or fall). Traditionally known as the harvest season, it's a time of year that brings an entirely different range of color and features to the landscape as the temperatures start to drop and the brisk autumn breezes start to blow.
Whether you live in a place where fall has started, or you're in a part of the world that's warm and green, you can still enjoy the highlights of the season by trying out one of the many autumn-based themes from our extensions catalog.
Too many to choose from? Try one of our favorites:
Planning to do some pumpkin-carving or apple-picking yourself in the next few months? You can turn the photos of your autumn outing into your very own theme with the Opera Theme Creator extension.

Ook! Let's see if this works. When visiting this page today you might have seen it in varying degrees of disrepair. That wasn't Opera News' being invaded again by the server monkeys but its being invaded by me with a new Opera News design. Both the monkeys and I "ook" a lot, so it is hard to tell the difference.
It's fall now, and well... it's not showing it yet here in Louisiana, being 33°C (88°F). However, in Norway I'm sure it's bone chillingly cold already and the leaves are ready to fall off the trees, so here's a blog design that reflects the beautiful colors we find during the autumn time of the year even if the designer himself is still waiting to see some nice leaves. I'm a sometimes employee of Opera, and I was contacted to do another design for Opera News. My instructions were to do something simpler, and I jumped at the chance to do something less busy. This design's by far my favorite of the bunch. The design mostly just uses a single color palette and uses just those colors throughout the page. It should also resize to fit the device you're working on, so if you're out and about in the park watching the kids play in the leaves (or jumping right in there with them yourself!
) you can visit Opera News with Opera Mini and be able to read the latest posts about fish, potatoes, fjords, moose, and occasional ramblings about this great browser called Opera.
I've also taken the time to make sure the design works well on the photo albums page, so if you're wanting to look through the albums you can go to the photo albums link on the page in the sidebar or at the bottom of the page if you're using a device with smaller screen space. I hope you enjoy it!
