Autumn leaves in Tsurugaoka-hachimangu

Autumn may be the most beautiful season of year because its gorgeous colors of leaves are so short-lived and its serene bright sky is so transient.

Too soon the flamboyantly colored leaves are scattered and swirled away by a bitterly cold wind.

Too soon the clear blue sky of this gentle season transforms into the thick ash-colored canopy of coldness.
