I never cared for the science of it all, photosynthesis and such, but there is something about the turning of the leaves that is a fun safety net between summer being over, and not quite snowy season.
This morning, the sun was gleaming on the bright colors, and I had to snap a few shots to share.
Its funny, the giant maple in my yard, just turns a yellowish brown, you would think it was a spicy mustard tree. but some are bright red, or orange, and look amazing.
I suppose I can take solace in knowing that what my trees lack in color this fall they make up for in syrup production in the spring.
Do the leaves change where you live? If not, do you ever come north just to leaf peep?
