Of all the magnificent seasons, autumn is the most wonderful season of all. Not only do the leaves change into vivid, colorful pictures as people drive by their beauty every day to work, but the temperature is just as inviting. People enjoy outdoor activities much more when it is a mild temperature than when the weather is either too hot or too cold. People also seem to be more cheerful and happy when it feels that way outside. A perfect depiction of the best season ever would be: when the trees look as if they are a picture in a postcard, the weather is perfect, and people are in better moods.
What do people think when they hear the word autumn? Beautiful trees, leaves slowly changing from green to orange, and from red, to yellow, are the first things that come to mind for most people. It is a splendid sight driving to the store, or even coming home from work; when all around, the mountains are full of warm colors like a sea of leaves. The crisp, refreshing autumn air fills everybody’s nostrils and lungs. Just to look at something this astounding promotes extreme relaxation for most people. Imagine looking out at nature’s canopy and realizing that life is an amazing thing, and the need for beauty is one of the things that separates humans from animals.
People need beauty, and it comes around every year in the form of autumn. Not only does the beauty of autumn appeal to the eye, but the mild weather makes it feel just as comfortable as it looks. Sometimes, the weather is too hot to go out and play football; sometimes it’s too cold to have a barbecue; but in autumn, every day is a football or grilling day. People like to feel relaxed when enjoying outdoor activities. During autumn, the temperature stays constant and comfortable for most people. It’s extremely relaxing to be outside on a cool day and enjoy nature’s beauty. Perhaps the greatest reason of all would have to be the people’s attitudes. It seems that everybody is in a jollier mood during this time of year than any other season. A couple possibilities are the pretty weather, and the holidays coming up just around the corner. People are happier to see each other, more grateful for what they have, and quicker to help someone in need during this time.
Perhaps this is due to the crisp, fresh air outside; or the pure magnificence of the mountain view. When people are nicer and care about each other more, it makes this world a more loving place for everybody. In conclusion, all the other seasons just can’t compare to autumn; it is the best season by far. People need beauty in their lives, which this season provides. People need to feel relaxed and less stressed out about everyday life, which autumn once again provides. Finally, people need to be more respectful and happy towards each other. With the beauty, the smell, the temperature, and the overall relaxing feeling autumn gives people: it overall increases kindness and love within every human being.
18 Oct Falling for the Colors of Autumn: Photo Essay

Moving to a tropical island? No thanks. To me, the tropics are good for a few days but if I enjoy the climate and the vibe for a little while, I soon long to leave.
Indeed, I like the seasons, the way nature changes, offering different colours and smells. Every yearly cycle looks like a miracle happening again and again, a symbol of the life sprouting, blossoming, growing, fading and then dying.
Each season has its charm, and I like them all, although I’m a little partial to spring and autumn. After the winter, seeing the first blossoms gives me an immediate feeling of joy.
Fall arises a sense of melancholy as I look at the bright colors of autumn like a last explosion of warmth before the arrival of the cold and the snow.
There’s no place like the mountains to savor the colors of autumn, hiking in the woods, walking on the dead leaves covering the path, enjoying the last rays of sunshine, shedding their awesome oblique light on the surrounding nature.
I have wonderful memories of autumn in Courmayeur, overlooking the majestic Mont Blanc, in the Dolomites, in Switzerland.
But albeit beautiful, I dream of seeing foliage in the United States, where the colors of autumn have an intensity which I’m not sure exists in Europe.
How do you like the colors of autumn? Which is your favorite season?
