Jamaica Pond 秋色 10/21/2006 19:25

当南瓜熟了
叶子红了
祝所有相识的人
有缘无缘
和顺平安。


就画本身而论,本来顶部的叶子淡许多,并有间隙露出天空,最后用橘红色盖了一层是个败笔。
当然,因为去pond前喝了一大杯咖啡,一直想上厕所,所以总体都画的比较潦草 oops
你的秋天太有朝气了 Laughing

今年只有画画的心情, 却没了诗意. 这首诗真好. rose

今天去了植物园,

每一棵树都是一首诗, 美极了, 无以言表.

回来的路上, 看见湖里有划船, 我们在你走前没找到时间. 一定是很美的.

虽然橙色不是我最喜欢的颜色,但是在这里有一种很奇怪的冲击力。

It is 9 3/4" by 12 1/2". It will fit in 9" by 12" matting and 16" by 20" framing.

I hope 你说的"有一种很奇怪的冲击力", 和tutu说的“朝气”,不是指生命的回光返照 wink 。如果是,也只说明生命是要轮回的,一朝叶子落尽,你会发现树杆的美。

我会再贴一张树杆的习作。

为什么没时间出去玩儿呢?一定要抽一点时间,外边这么漂亮。下个周末去植物园看看,只需要2-3个小时。 rose

Why leaves change color?

From the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry
The Splendor of Autumn

Every autumn we revel in the beauty of the fall colors. The mixture of red, purple, orange and yellow is the result of chemical processes that take place in the tree as the seasons change from summer to winter.

During the spring and summer the leaves have served as factories where most of the foods necessary for the tree's growth are manufactured. This food-making process takes place in the leaf in numerous cells containing chlorophyll(叶绿素), which gives the leaf its green color. This extraordinary chemical absorbs from sunlight the energy that is used in transforming carbon dioxide and water to carbohydrates, such as sugars and starch.

Along with the green pigment are yellow to orange pigments, carotenes (叶红素)and xanthophyll (黄色色素;叶黄质)
pigments which, for example, give the orange color to a carrot. Most of the year these colors are masked by great amounts of green coloring.

Chlorophyll Breaks Down

But in the fall, because of changes in the length of daylight and changes in temperature, the leaves stop their food-making process. The chlorophyll (叶绿素)breaks down, the green color disappears, and the yellow to orange colors become visible and give the leaves part of their fall splendor.

At the same time other chemical changes may occur, which form additional colors through the development of red anthocyanin (花青素)pigments. Some mixtures give rise to the reddish and purplish fall colors of trees such as dogwoods and sumacs(漆树), while others give the sugar maple its brilliant orange.

The autumn foliage of some trees show only yellow colors. Others, like many oaks, display mostly browns. All these colors are due to the mixing of varying amounts of the chlorophyll residue and other pigments in the leaf during the fall season.

Other Changes Take Place

As the fall colors appear, other changes are taking place. At the point where the stem of the leaf is attached to the tree, a special layer of cells develops and gradually severs the tissues that support the leaf. At the same time, the tree seals the cut, so that when the leaf is finally blown off by the wind or falls from its own weight, it leaves behind a leaf scar.

Most of the broad-leaved trees in the North shed their leaves in the fall. However, the dead brown leaves of the oaks and a few other species may stay on the tree until growth starts again in the spring. In the South, where the winters are mild, some of the broad-leaved trees are evergreen; that is, the leaves stay on the trees during winter and keep their green color.

Only Some Trees Lose Leaves

Most of the conifers - pines, spruces, firs, hemlocks, cedars, etc. - are evergreen in both the North and South. The needle- or scale-like leaves remain green or greenish the year round, and individual leaves may stay on for two to four or more years.

Weather Affects Color Intensity

Temperature, light, and water supply have an influence on the degree and the duration of fall color. Low temperatures above freezing willfavor anthocyanin formation producing bright reds in maples. However, early frost will weaken the brilliant red color. Rainy and/or overcast days tend to increase the intensity of fall colors. The best time to enjoy the autumn color would be on a clear, dry, and cool (not freezing) day.

Enjoy the color, it only occurs for a brief period each fall.
