This week, autumn has started; at least here in Switzerland. The mornings are refreshingly cool and a little foggy, the sun is bright, but not burning anymore, the sky has a intense, dark autumn blue, and the trees and leaves start putting on their colorful display. It is the combination of all of the properties and mostly the latter one that make this my most preferred season! For once, the actual percived start of autumn coincides with the astronomical calendar: In Zurich, the September Equinox 2014 was on Tuesday, September 23rd.
This year, I will accompany fall with regular leafcolor contributions, such as the one above. Since many years I have been searching, collecting, and scanning interestingly colored, fallen leaves. The imagery shown under the leafcolor label are thus not photographs, but high resolution scans of autumnal leaves. In my opinion, the detail, patterns and arrangements of colors are often really amazing.
