Fall light

I have often thought that the fall colors of the deciduous trees are the compensation 
Mother Nature gives us for taking away daylight.

I say, "not good enough, Mother Nature."

I think you are right. Beautiful.

Beautiful colours, but I quite like the cosy dark evenings too :D not so much with the murky mornings though! xx

I like how the tree in your photo has both the green and the changing color. It really is a process.

You may be right ! But I really like the trees best when they're bare anyway ... such beautiful shapes .

Cool shot with the trees half changed. It makes sense that color in the trees could be a replacement for lack of sunshine. Never thought about that. We are having a very beautiful fall here, too.

Yeah, I'm thinking that maybe it won't be as bad as I fear; first there's colour, then there's all that cosy homebodying, and before you know it, it's spring, The only really dreadful time to come is Christmas.
