As the sunlight hours diminish, the green chlorophyll synthesizes less nourishment and fades, allowing other colourful pigments to appear in the leaves, particularly the carotenoids (yellow, orange) and anthocyanins (red, purple).
Nature then takes on the sumptuous shimmering shades of the season. A glimpse of sun peeping between the the clouds produces magical lighting effects.
The autumn palette of flowers and leaves gives you a wide variety of choice to compose some beautiful colour combinations.
