Vernal Equinox

Today is the first official day of Autumn.
The vernal equinox, which roughly translated means equal hours of daylight and darkness.
Following a relatively dry summer, September brings cooler nights. The results are very colourful. Suddenly the trees are filling with brilliant colours that just a couple of days ago were mostly green.

Yes, indeed they are colourful, but the meaning is not what I welcome!

You're so right about the swift appearance of fall's beauty--several trees outside our apartment windows change every night. Thanks for the lovely photo.

Great colour!!

Thanks for visiting my NorthBayPhoto blog. I know that NHL tickets are bit pricey (I've seen a few Leaf games - scalpers want insane prices), but what was great about Hockeyville is that the tickets were all free!
