How the world changes from summer to fall..Beauty just for us {submitted by Duane Elmer}

Just in case you’ve been watching the trees change colors, here’s a list of photos that compare   various locations   before and after they change   into their autumn colors. Besides the nip in the air and the delicious autumn fruits and vegetables, the   changing leaves are probably the greatest sign   of autumn that there is.  Chlorophyll, which is the green   pigment in leaves that produces energy for trees, gradually   breaks down in the fall, revealing the many other colors that also exist in leaves.  That’s where we get the rich browns, oranges, yellows and reds that we associate with the season .   Tu Hwnt I’r Bont Tearoom in Llanrwst, North Wales Image credits:  unicorn81 Image credits:  g7preston Gapstow Bridge, New York , USA Image credits:   Jessica Jenney Image credits:  BooRad0859 Japanese Maple Image credits:  Kadek Susanto Image credits:  Pete Wongkongkathep Apartment Building Facade Image credits:  i
