Technically, the amazing display of color that happens in the autumn it is nothing more than a simple act on mother nature’s behalf. As winter weather starts to draw near, the days get shorter, the sun is out less… photosynthesis dwindles and the chlorophyll production in leaves drops, making the green pigment in the leaves break down and the other natural pigments more prominent: reds, yellows, oranges. What results is one of the most beautiful displays of natural color that you can see.

Seriously… take a picture. It will last longer.
