Since I started living in Spain one of the things I miss the most is the fall. Autumn is unarguably the most beautiful season, and I’ve always been lucky enough to live in a region of the United States that has an amazing fall. The leaves on the deciduous trees change from green to a vast array of beautiful colors: brilliant yellows, golden oranges and fiery reds.
Every time late September rolls around, kids are back in school, and the air starts getting cooler, my brain switches into fall mode and all I want to do is frolic in crunchy leaves, sip a pumpkin spice latte, and cuddle up in a comfy sweatshirt.
In Rochester where I went to university there is a large and beautiful cemetery. I got over my cemetery heebie jeebies when I started thinking of them as big beautiful parks with thousands of histories buried beneath my feet. My university campus was bordered on one side by a curve in the Genesee river, and on the other side by the Mt. Hope Cemetery. How is this related to autumn? During the fall of my last year in university I decided to take a walk around the cemetery to take some photographs.
I was blown away. I didn’t realize how incredibly beautiful it would actually be. I recently looked through the photos again after my autumn nostalgia hit me, and WOW, I just needed to share them here. Out of the 60+ photos I took that day I parsed it down to these which was so difficult. Feast your eyes!
So, what do you guys think? Is fall your new favorite season? Have you seen amazing colors like this while traveling? Tell me about it in the comments!
