Autumn leaf

0805 autumn leaf

This leaf almost looks like wood, with its burnished texture and rich brown colours. On and around the tree was a palette of colour, from yellow through to this one.

While the northern hemisphere blogosphere is rejoicing in spring, we're enjoying the colours of autumn, and the renewed relevance of warming cold hands around a mug of hot chocolate. In the middle of the day, it's not so cold that you can't sit in the sun, out of the wind, and enjoy the outdoors - Sydney's climate hardly plunges you into the depths of winter - and you feel more invigorated, as opposed to the humidity of summer, which sucks the energy from you.

Spring and autumn (fall) are my favourite seasons.

Lovely colour. I used to like autumn when I was young. Now it seems a bit metaphorical to me...
