Rooftop Leaf

屋顶上的叶子

Photograph by Kalle Mustonen, My Shot


A single red maple leaf rests on a Finnish roof. The recipe for red leaves appears

 to be a stretch of warm, sunny days punctuated by cool (but above freezing) 

nights. This most popular of leaf colors is also the most variable. Unlike yellow

 or orange colors, always present but often invisible in leaves, red-colored 

anthocyanin pigments are produced during the fall season itself. Scientists 

aren’t sure why, but suspect the process is meant to protect leaves just a bit

 longer by serving as antifreeze, insect repellent, or sunscreen.

一张红色的枫叶停留在芬兰式的屋顶上。红叶似乎是由延伸中的温暖晴朗的

白日被凉爽(但高于零点)的黑夜不时打断所形成的。最常见的叶子颜色也

是最多变的。不像黄色和橙色,一直存在于叶子中却不显见,红颜色的花色

苷色素是在秋季由叶子自身产生的。科学家不确定为什么会这样,但是怀疑

这一过程起到防冻剂、杀虫剂或是防晒剂的作用,旨在保护叶子更久一点。




Natagiri Pass Path

山刀伐岭的小路

Brilliant autumn sunshine and an inviting carpet of colorful leaves entice 

walkers ever-upward along a path on Japan’s Natagiri Pass. Those taking this

 trail follow in the footsteps of the great poet Matsuo Basho, who traveled it 

in 1689. Readers of his backcountry journal, Narrow Road to a Far Province,

 have sought the path ever since.
灿烂的秋日阳光与五彩落叶铺就的绝美地毯吸引着散步的人沿着日本山刀伐岭

的一条小路不停向上走。他们沿着在1689年出游的伟大诗人松尾芭蕉的足迹,

走过这条小路。读过他的野外游记——《奥の细道》的读者从此便开始寻找起

这条小路。


Maine River Gorge

缅因河峡谷

The West Branch of the Pleasant River in Maine tumbles through a rocky

gorge lined with trees sporting evergreen needles and cloaked in fall color.

Here at remote Gulf Hagas, the river tumbles down a series of waterfalls to 

drop more than 400 feet (122 meters) over four miles (6.5 kilometers).

缅因州的Pleasant River的西线支流翻腾过一个岩石峡谷,峡谷两侧整齐排列着

常绿针叶树,被掩盖在秋色之中。在此处在遥远的哈格斯海湾,在超过4英里

(6.5千米)的路程内这条河翻腾着冲下一系列的高于400英尺(122米)的瀑布。
