Autumn reflections, a season of beauty and change, celebrating life and making way for new life...

“Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go” Unknown. Powerful in its simplicity and beautiful in colour! It spoke volumes like a beautiful poem and such an artistic expression... the beauty, the sadness of parting and making way for the new, the seasons of life. I loved how it looks like the leaves are still on the tree, clinging to the beautiful memories of life! And the water as a medium of reflection, just as our memories are of loved ones who have passed on. The single, bright green leaf also stood out to me in contrast.
