Autumn Colours

Autumn brings along with the spectacular phenomenon of leaf colour when it seems God himself has taken hold of a palette, and painted the nature, with the leaves turning in every possible hues of red, yellow, purple, black, orange, pink, magenta, blue and brown. In Japan, Australia, Canada and the United States, "leaf peeping" tourism occurs between the beginning of colour changes and the onset of leaf fall. In the Northern Hemisphere it takes place around October, and in the Southern Hemisphere from April to May.
