Ode to Autumn

The flowers have been blooming brightly in September and October, and the leaves have been turning colors and falling off the trees. How to express the joy of walking through the parks of New York City and gazing upon those brilliant colors? Ah! Create a video ode to the blooms and falling leaves.

You may recall a recent video, Autumn in Brooklyn's Garden. That gave a taste of some of the fall colors from one day at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. But The Falling Leaves, below, is a banquet! This visual feast is set to the first and third movements of Vivaldi's Four Seasons: Autumn, performed by John Harrison.

Here are some of the autumn photos, many included in the video. You can find more photos on the Flowers and Foliage page.
