Presumably it's called Fall in the US because of the way the tress lose their leaves which fall tot he ground? Perhaps any American readers can clarify that? Autumn brings the colder weather before the onset of winter, which makes the trees go into their slower period of growth and drop their leaves. What I love about autumn is the colours these leaves change to. Golden browns, reds and oranges in a myriad of variations, scattering our paths and gardens. Artists love this time of year and use the beautiful scenes outside to produce works of wonder, reflecting the magic going on outside.
Whilst painters and poets can create their own improvisations of autumnal delights, photographers set about shooting the best scenes from behind their lenses. Understanding the best angles, the best light and the best locations is something the most knowledgable photographers will do, and this will produce some of the best autumnal photo art.
If you have a camera, or are a keen painter, don't miss this time of year. It doesn't last too long before the colours fade and winter takes over so make the most of it for your portfolio. I myself will be going out tonight to capture some stunning trees in our local park which will hopefully look incredible at sunset. I may even get up early and take a trip to the local lake to capture the colours at sunrise where I think they work best. Good luck folks!
