Sunset by Lilyas Sunset by Lilyas
Autumn draws to a close. At least the beautiful part of it. Most leaves are fallen here, the colors are gone. Autumn is saying good bye with this magnificent flower (whose name is Dahlia).

You managed to find my most favorite flower for this shot; I just can't help but love Dahlia :love:

The color scheme in this is beautiful and shows the very beauty of autumn. I wish it was still autumn though... In here it's pretty dark already, all the leaves and colors gone. And it's raining pretty much every day. I love the rain but I'd wish for some snow to get the winter feeling. Oh well, time will show what'll come up next. :)
