Minnesota’s Spectrum of Color

Fall has always been my absolute favorite time of year. As the days and nights grow shorter and the sun shines her glorious luminous light, the leaves ever so slowly begin to change. This year, fall has been coming at a snail’s pace given our Indian Summer. Yet during the last few days the leaves have begun to turn into their magical tapestry of colors. Hues from pumpkin oranges, to scarlet reds and golden yellows delight the eyes. It is nature’s way of rewarding us with beauty and preparing us for the long, colorless winter ahead.

  4. Yes, I remember autumn although it’s been a while since I’ve seen one! Autumn colors are gorgeous and I also love that smokey, damp autumnal smell. I especially love your first photo, Nicole!

  6. Fall is my favorite season, as well, Nicole. In fact, I’m going to miss the leaves changing color now that we live so close to the equator. Lovely images, my friend.
