"I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house. So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air."
- Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864)
If you perceive something special in the autumnal light or see colours as more brilliant and deeply hued, you are not alone. The gilded season of fall brings the low, slanting light of the sun brings deeper blue skies to contrast with the changing leaves which for a while remain both lingering on the trees and carpeting the ground in all their fiery colours. This tartan was created to capture the essence of an autumnal landscape, combining tones of rich golds, fiery reds, and organic brown and greens. The position of the sun in the sky is changing which alters how we perceive color and light. With the change in humidity, there is less water vapor to scatter the light and together with the lower angle of the sun, directs more blue light towards the eyes while the indirect sunlight decreases the incoming levels of red and green. And with the abundance of contrasting coppery warm colours in the falling leaves, autumn has awed and inspired artists, writers, poets, and those who simply appreciate the beauty of the last of autumnal hours. 🍃 🍂 ☀️
