Autumn colour in Mediterranean forests


It’s that special time of year when walking in the forest becomes a magical experience, made yet more wondrous by its transience. Some network members shared the autumn beauty of their forests.

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
Albert Camus

“Notice that autumn is more the season of the soul than of nature.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting, and autumn a mosaic of them all.”
Stanley Horowitz
