The title really says it all. As much as I love the awakening of flowers in the Spring, Nature puts on her most spectacular show in Autumn. I never tire of the display. Every leaf is a masterpiece. Here, again, I was delighted by the play of light on the subject. It is amazing how a leaf that appears a dull red when in shadow bursts into fire when illuminated by sun light.
