Temperate Broadleaf Forest

Maple leaves (Canada)

In Autumn (or known in North America as Fall), the leaves start to lose their green colour producing chlorophyll, and the other anthocyanin and carotenoid pigments  are revealed in the weeks before the leaves go brown, die and fall off. During this time of the year, the forests turn various reds and oranges, and the tourism to appreciate this is known as 'leaf peeping'.

Well it looks like my first trip after the virus will be the Great Barrier Reef (where I started!) with Coral Expeditions.....I hope. If you can't go travelling until everything settles down, then until then, here I am doing online guided walks for Noble Caledonia and online lectures for Silversea.
