I never noticed leaves changing color in September in my neighborhood. September is sunny, and warm mostly. Last week when the temperature dropped, the maple tree in the backyard turned red. But that was not the first hint of blush I saw this month.
Today is officially the first day of the autumn, my favorite season.
There’s something nostalgic and noteworthy about autumn, that’s why I closely monitor the transformation of nature through my lens. It’s that season, ″that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness–that season which has drawn from every poet worthy of being read some attempt at description, or some lines of feeling.”
I clicked these photographs in Napa valley, a few weeks ago. Some parts of the vineyards already turned red by then. I was not able to ignore the changed colors in bright daylight. I named the moment and the photos “At first blush” that time only.
Wish you all a great autumn!
