It's been done. It's a cliche and everyone's doing it, but I can't help myself! When the leaves start turning I always think it's the best I've ever seen and I am compelled to take a bunch of pictures. Then I post them here.
Seen out on the walking path:
(Geez, it seems I took almost this exact same picture and posted it 2 years ago!)
The other day Ray said, "I wonder why the leaves turn such brilliant colors in the fall. You would think they might just turn brown and then drop off the trees. Nature must have a reason for the bright color." My only explanation is just to make us happy before winter arrives.
I hope you are seeing beauty like this where you live.
