Photographer @michaelmelford captures autumn oak and maple trees along a road at Woodlawn, a 1,100 acre tract of upland meadows and woods. Temperature, sunlight and soil moisture all play a role in how the leaves will look in the fall. The best weather for brilliant fall foliage is a growing season with ample moisture followed by a dry, cool and sunny autumn with warm days and cool, but frostless nights. #autumn #meadow #foliage #fall #sunlight
