my version of Autumn 2.
Autumn (also known as fall in North American English) is one of the four temperate seasons. Autumn marks the transition from summer into winter, usually in March (southern hemisphere) or September (northern hemisphere) when the arrival of night becomes noticeably earlier.
Meteorological Offset Astronomical
Northern hemisphere 1 September – 30 November Autumnal equinox (22-23 September) – Winter solstice (21–22 December)
Southern hemisphere 1 March – 31 May[3] Autumnal equinox (20-21 March) – Winter solstice (20-21 June) The equinoxes might be expected to be in the middle of their seasons, but temperature lag (caused by the thermal latency of the ground and sea) means that seasons appear later than dates calculated from a purely astronomical perspective. The actual lag varies with region, so some cultures regard the autumnal equinox as "mid-autumn" whilst others treat it as the start of autumn (as shown in the above table).
Autumn starts on or around 15 September and ends on about 20 December in traditional East Asian solar term.
Personification of Autumn (Currier & Ives lithograph, 1871).In Ireland, the autumn months according to the national meteorological service, Met Éireann, are September, October and November. However, according to the Irish Calendar which is based on ancient Celtic traditions, autumn counts throughout the months of August, September, and October.

In Australia autumn officially begins on 1st March and ends 31st May. The vast diversity of the ecological zones of the Australian continent renders the rigid European seasonal calendar an imposed cultural concept rather than relevant to climactic conditions. The seasonal cycles as named and described by the various indigenous Aboriginal peoples of Australia differ substantially from one another according to their local geographical and ecological environment and are intricately dependent on local environmental events and resources.

Hallo Siegfried,

Beautiful capture of the autumn colors, with great sharpness and from a wonderful POV!
The colors are very natural and the well shown through your work. The complete inclusion of left leaf in FG, might have improved the quality of image but overall it works well. The cloudy sky brings great mood ino the shot.
Well done, my friend.

best regards,

Hello Siegfried,

Best regards,

Wonderful capture, great details and colors, but your note is amazing.

Hello Siegfried,

Je passe par ici et je vois une belle présentation agréable au regard.
Plaquées contre ce ciel, les feuilles ont encore plus d'éclats. Superbe idée, la composition est réussie.
