Autumn colour in a maple leaf

Autumn maple leaf. Autumn colour in a maple leaf (Acer macrophyllum). Maple trees are common across the Northern Hemisphere, and the leaf has been adopted as the symbol of Canada. They are popular ornamental trees as during the autumn the leaves turn the brilliant yellow seen here, or even to bright red. This colour change is due to the breakdown of the green pigment chlorophyll, which masks the other colours for the rest of the year

EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning print captures the vibrant beauty of autumn in a single maple leaf. The intricate details and rich colors showcased in this Acer macrophyllum leaf exemplify why maple trees have become synonymous with the changing seasons. As one of the most common tree species across the Northern Hemisphere, maples hold a special place in our hearts, particularly in Canada where they are proudly embraced as a national symbol. During autumn, these ornamental trees undergo a remarkable transformation, turning their leaves into brilliant shades of yellow and even bright red. This color change is caused by the breakdown of chlorophyll, which typically masks these hues throughout the year. The photograph not only celebrates nature's artistry but also highlights its botanical significance. It reminds us of the wonders found within our natural world and encourages us to appreciate every season's unique offerings. Whether you're an avid botany enthusiast or simply someone who appreciates breathtaking visuals, this print serves as a reminder that there is immense beauty to be found even in something as small as a single leaf. Let it transport you to an enchanting autumn landscape filled with warmth and wonder.
