USSR ' Autumn is a second spring, when every leaf is a flower ' - Albert Camus
Autumn, also known as fall , One of its main features in temperate climates is the shedding of leaves from deciduous trees.
Autumn is beautiful and gorgeous season in russia. Trees are covered with their golden outfits abd leaves change their colors to yellow, gold, red and fulvous. The incredible beauty of nature in this season fascinates with its varied and unusual colors. At that time, many birds, who arrived in the spring and raise their young, fly away to warmer climes to spend winter in comfortable conditions. Also people celebrate autumn harvest festival which means that all harvest is gathered and all preparations for the winter coming are finished.
As Stanley Horowitz says “Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.” This beautiful set is a visual tour to Autumn in Russia. The blessed unknown artist portrayed the autumn with beautiful illustrations and vivid tone of colors. A sense of landscape and atmosphere is amazingly captured in hazy brush strokes still beautifully conveyed the subject. Truly magical... From my golden leaves collection. . . ...
