Autumn In The Forest
With a graceful pageantry that has long captured the imagination of poets and artists, the brilliant foliage of autumn in Canada has made the nation a fall destination for visitors from around the world. As the final harvest nears an end, flushed from coast to coast with showy russets, warm coppers, intense purples, vibrant golds and glossy greens, Canada’s beauty in autumn is perhaps surpassed only when this riot of color is doubled in the silver mirror of a still lake.

Golden_Maple.jpgThe season itself results from the annual shifting of the planet’s northern pole away from the sun. This shift attenuates the intensity of the sun’s rays in Canada and other northern countries, resulting in the reduced daylight and colder weather that triggers processes such as the changing of the leaves. The colors we see lining the shore as we quietly paddle a canoe across a crystalline lake result from chemical processes in the leaves, with different chemicals producing distinct colors. Triggered by autumn’s reduced daylight hours, deciduous species like aspen, maple, larch, oak, beech, poplar and birch begin to shut down photosynthesis for the oncoming winter, when the tree will live instead on stored food reserves. As a tree stops producing chlorophyll —the biomolecule that gives leaves their green color—other tones reveal themselves. In many maple species, this reduction of photosynthesis produces anthocyanin pigments that turn leaves bright red and purple. Brown leaves, such as those on beech and oak trees, result from waste products like tannins. Yellow poplar leaves reveal the presence of xanthophyll and orange maple leaves contain carotene—pigments that are present in the leaf throughout the growing season, but are normally concealed by chlorophyll.

These chemical processes not only help to prepare and preserve the trees for the long, cold winter to come, but create an amazing blaze of color that draws visitors from around the world. In a season when colder weather and less daylight drives Canadians to warmer indoor pursuits, the glory of autumn pulls us back outside to celebrate a landscape that is diverse and lavishly beautiful in every season.

Autumn leavesAn Eye-Catching, Soul-Stirring Design!
The stunning design by Canadian artist Tony Bianco presents an idyllic, lakeside view of Canada’s autumn landscape. Color over engraving re-creates the season’s iconic mix of red, orange, yellow, green and brown foliage that transform the once-green surroundings and make Canada a prime fall destination! The mosaic of colorful leaves is beautifully reflected on the lightly rippled surface of the water, along with the purple hue of the hills that rise up in the distance. Near the water’s edge, two Adirondack or Muskoka chairs invite us to linger longer in this tranquil setting, where the trumpeting call of Canadian geese (Branta canadensis) overhead is associated with the change of season and adds to this quintessentially North American experience.
