The dawn of autumn always reminds me of the fragility of life and the fact that change is always around the corner.
It is a season of relief from the sweltering and relentless heat of an Australian summer, yet still warm enough to spend valuable time outdoors before winters chill encroaches.
The veggie patch is overflowing with delicious produce and everything is slowly beginning to undergo a process of ripening and decay.
For me, the brief splash of colour that autumn brings before the leaves fall and skies darken into winter signifies the power of nature to bring respite, change and renewal.
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
Here are some photos I took this morning of the changing leaves in the King Valley, North East Victoria.
