Every season writes its own story in color. Winter has its stark contrast between snow-covered fields and crisp cobalt skies. Spring gushes neon green underfoot while the treetops sprout pastel oinks and reds from the end of every twig. Summer is a whole box of crayons spilled out before us. But Autumn, that’s when nature paints with abandonment. No holding back. Reds are deeper, and golds and yellows have a richness that took the entire year to create.
