While I am “partial” to ALL seasons, there is something unique and special about the coming of Fall…..
I suppose it has something to do with harvest. If you are a farmer or a gardener, fall is a time when the crops are in and the landscape gets ready for a winter nap. So, while Spring may be a time of promise, Fall is a time of fulfillment. In warmer climates the nap is not a long one, but in the colder regions it can be lengthy.
In some parts of the world, fall is just a passing thing, but in the temperate and colder areas, the transition from summer to fall is something to behold. Depending on where you live, fall can last from two weeks of spectacular beauty to as much as six weeks. It all depends on the number of species that turn color. Most turn one species at a time, so the season is longer! For instance, Birches and Aspens may turn first, followed by Maples and other deciduous trees. Where Larch grows, they turn last of all. As the lighting and cloud cover changes, the moods change as well.What looks one way in the morning becomes something else in the afternoon!
Here we post some scenes that are pleasing to the eye. They are taken in the Western United States in the states of Utah, Idaho and Montana. Enjoy the spectacular “Blooms of Fall!”
