Sweet Falling

The Truth of the Story Lies in the Details – Photo: William Smith

And while the media and weather reports keep on telling the “catastrophe” of the autumn and winter months, through their fatal bulletins, we wish to celebrate the magical atmospheres of these seasons by collecting some of the most moving moments on the net, because, as poets like Remy de Gourmont and Joe. L. Wheeler sing “Autumn is as joyful and sweet as an untimely end” and “there is something incredibly nostalgic and significant about the annual cascade of Autumn leaves.”

The Autumn season is known as Fall in the US and Canada because of one of its characteristics: the shedding of leaves from deciduous trees. The colors we all associate with Fall — the transition from green to light yellow, deep gold, orange, crimson and dark red — are all inspired by this natural process.

And there are guys like Andy Goldsworthy who goes to extreme lengths for his work, from scaling spiky bushes to lying on a pavement in a storm…

Henry David Thoreau
