|Mont St-Odile, Alsace|
Autumn is like a second spring, when every leaf is a flower.
-- Albert Camus
Although the temperature dropped to snowy this week-end here in France, I am not quite done singing praise to Autumn yet. Every year, I am equally amazed at the beautiful dress Nature dons when the Autumn days arrive. Rich and bright yellows, oranges, reds and browns vibrate in the changing landscape, and the low, quiet sun of Autumn brings their colours to the fullest.
It was to my delight that I discovered the Autumnal forests of Alsace this October, and this sublime view from the top of Mont Saint Odile. Can you really look at that kind of landscape and tell me Autumn sucks?
