Fractals and autumn

This was taken in our neighborhood. I think this may be the most beautiful autumn I’ve ever experienced.  Everywhere I look there’s one gorgeous color after another, and it gets better every day. This certainly makes up for the beastly summer we had!

Lacework provided by common insects. The design almost looks like fractals, eh?
Random factoid: the father of fractal geometry, Benoit Mandelbrot, died recently. I’m not a mathematician, but my husband is.

We had a drought this summer and that’s supposed to make for dull fall colors, but that didn’t happen here….

Wow, this week’s gone fast! See you Monday….

    May I ask where you are located. Your description of the weather sounds like my own in Massachusetts.

    Once more… such beautiful pictures. You got an eye for discovering things. It is strange, we have the worst autumn ever. It lasted… two weeks? The first snow is already falling. This is not typical for central Europe in October, believe me.

  4. Snow already? Oh, that is tough. We had a pretty bad winter last year (4 ft. of snow after one storm) but I’m hoping it will be milder this year.

    Aaah – back to these absolutely beautiful pictures. You have a gift!

    PS – It’s formerly Miss Welcome. Finally got my new blog up and running – same name as when you found me (I was so surprised), but I had switched to wp.org instead of wp.com which is why the one you found was deleted.
