“You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light. But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen. When the cold rains kept on and killed the spring, it was as though a young person died for no reason.” - Ernest Hemingway


  1. Gorgeous colours.

    I certainly understand the need for substantial rainfall and cloud cover in winter because, for many places, that is the only time of year the reservoirs can fill up. But I don't see any reason for bare branches, cold wintry light, frozen rivers and total human/animal misery.

  2. I just love autumn and winter!
