The incredible colors of autumn! The dynamics of the natural cycle of the seasons is always a wonderful discovery for everyone. Each season has its own beauty, with its polychromies that express its essence and moods. And the walks through the woods and country lanes always reserve us priceless emotions.
In Italy today there are about 10 million hectares of woods. Forests that in autumn light up with colors, creating colorful wonders, especially in the mountain areas. Yes, it is the most magical time of the year.
It is an opportunity to embark on explorations of fantastic colors: a real experience of life in nature that is painted and dressed, waiting for the winter months. These spectacular color palettes are called “foliage”. They are pure poetry, as well as a regenerating opportunity, to escape urban life for a few days, carving out moments for ourselves, breathing the essences of the trees in an enchanting setting. In Italy there are many places that are able to express the beauty of autumn foliage, spectacles of nature, to be experienced day after day, in the slow and constant change of extraordinary colors, with a thousand shades. A chromatic adventure that I have summarized in this photo gallery, which presents some images taken in the Upper Imagna Valley, in the Pre-Alps of Lombardy.
