The morning brings a refreshing cool. Beads of dew adorn slender blades of grass, replenished after the intensity of summer.

Golden light streams through leaves, tentatively holding onto the branches that have sustained them.

Warmth sets upon my face.

The coming days brings gradual change.

Brilliant shades of yellow, orange, red and crimson. A remarkable display, as leaves dance upon a gentle breeze.

Finally reaching a stunning crescendo.
