Fall Colors: Autumn Cornucopia



fall colorsFall colors are a very visible expression of the significance of color in our lives. The vivid hues of yellow, orange and red are an unmistakable reminder of the beauty of the created order.

Take a moment to ponder the purpose of color. Why did God create it on the first day as part of the spectrum of visible light? Was it primarily for function, when we could do just fine in a black and white world? What would our world be like, though, without the Rose, the aqua-marine of the Caribbean or a Rainbow in full display?

No, it's been well-said that God went far beyond mere functionality in creating color; rather, it was a display of His creative heart, bent on eliciting a sense of awe and wonder in his people.


Let the rivers clap their hands, Let the mountains sing together for joy... (Psalm 98:8)




This fall I found myself appreciating the fall colors in my area more than usual. I don't think they were any more brilliant than other years; they just captured my attention in a different way this time.

And I was able to spend an afternoon in the North Saskatchewan river valley when the colors were particularly striking and the weather warm and calm. The images on this page are the result, with additions from other fall forages.
