Fall (aka Autumn). There’s really nothing like it. It’s a festival of colour, and no day is the same.
It starts with green leaves turning vibrant oranges, burning reds, and golden yellows. The colours are so rich and mesmerizing. If you’re lucky, you might get a couple of weeks of these colours, but it never seems long enough.
Suddenly the falling of the leaves begins on some trees. Others have their leaves change to more earthy yellows and oranges. The landscape completely changes, but the softer yellows and oranges are starkly in contrast with the drab leafless trees. Whilst not as jaw-dropping, it’s like a visual exhale.
Over the coming days and weeks, the scene becomes more bleak. Some country roads feel desolate, empty and cold; a reminder of what is coming.
As an Australian, I’ve only really experienced two seasons before: summer and (snowless) winter. I’d never experienced fall and the remarkable colours before coming to Canada. This year, I was lucky enough to share the experience with my parents who arrived at the tail-end of the rich fall colours.
Below is a slideshow of fall photos I would love to share with you. If you haven’t experienced fall like this before, put it on your bucket list 🙂
