Each year I fall in love with this season, the incredible feast the red, orange and golden leaves provide to my eyes.
I surprise myself snapping away, trying to immortalise the magical season, in all its glory.
This has become my favourite season. It has just overtaken summer by a hair.
I do love summer. But the aesthetic side of me is just too taken by the beauty of Autumnal colours.
I found out that leaves change colour as trees take the chlorophyll, sugars and other nutrients responsible for their green tint. Once the leaves are "empty", the trees shed them.
But all the goodness is now stocked to survive the winter.
Some say this is a happy coincidence. I see providence.
I see a Great artist and designer, masterful at marrying the practical and the useful, a being who loves us enough to want us to enjoy life, beauty, for free.
